After installing the weather stripping for the trunk of my 69 camaro the trunk does not close all the way. My first thought is to trim the weather stripping. Does anyone have any experieince or tips on how to properly install this?
You probably used the Softseal brand of weather stripping which is not soft. I had the same problem and sent it back for a refund. I replaced it with product from these guys and it solved the problem. http://www.clestersauto.com/camaro&.htm
Other people on this forum like the Metro brand
I bought a GM NOS seal and tried for 2 months to train it by pressing on the lid with more pressure every night. I got it within a i/4" of closing but that was it. Finally I ordered a Metro seal through Autozone installed it and the lid closed perfectly the first time.
Metro all the way. I used another brand and couldn't close the trunk either. Closes gear with the Metro trunk weatherstrip. Take a good look at the cross sectional dimensions there are HUGE differences and thicker doesn't mean it's better, it usually means your trunk won't close when done.
