People think that I am crazy on this one but I am reusing the original weatherstripping, fuzzy’s, and rubber door sweeps. The weatherstripping is not mint but it is still very nice, the fuzzy’s and rubber sweeps are nearly mint. I can always replace it later if I need to but this original stuff is still nice and pliable. I washed it with dish soap and a tooth brush. Took a lone time for it to completely dry in the sun. Had water inside the foam for a long while. I have temporary trim pieces holding the headliner so those look funny for now, I will install the original stuff closer to when I have the interior done.
