    Default Rear window weatherstripping installation

    I have a 69 coupe and I'm installing a new weatherstrip on the removable rear window. The strip has been too difficult to dry fit but I think it will work.
    Does anyone have suggestions on how to hold the strip in place while the glue dries?

    You may find the weatherstripping easier to work with if you lay it out in the sun and let it warm up. Absent the sun, a heat gun can be used instead. As Mike suggested, use masking tape to hold in place.
    I used to be with it, then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with, isn't it and what's it seems weird.
