Most of the early generation Mustang weather strip for the trunks gets installed the same way. This is Scott Drake's Trunk Weather Strip. It’s going to fit your ‘65 through ‘70 Mustang Coupe or convertible.
While weather stripping can be installed on the trunk lid of the vehicle, it's much easier to take the trunk lid off. Get some tape, mark where hinges are, remove the bolts and remove your truck lid. Make sure you put something underneath the corners of the truck lid if you’re doing this by yourself so it doesn't damage your paint. This is typical of the weather stripping we find in a lot of classic Mustangs, because it's glued on people are afraid to take it off. This car was actually painted and somebody left the weather stripping on. That's the worst thing you can do because the paint actually makes the weather strip dry out even faster. You see how it's cracked, pieces of it are chipping off. It definitely isn’t doing the job, it needs to be replaced.
We're going to start removing the existing weather stripping. This can be a long and tedious process but you want to do as good a job as possible because the cleaner you get the surface from the old weather strip the better the new stuff’s going to stick. A plastic pry bar is probably your best tool here. Just get underneath the corner, start prying it up and start removing it. Once you get the bigger pieces off we’re going to spray this adhesive cleaner on first. Basically a cleaner/remover it'll soften up what's left once you let it sit for a few minutes; make it little bit easier to get it off. Like I said, this part will be tedious but the better job you do here the better job your new weather stripping is going to do. Once you get scrape and get the trunk lid as clean as possible you want to go back through with some isopropyl alcohol. Put it on a rag of some sort and go all around the edge to get it as clean as possible for the adhesive.
The question we get often is actually how the weather strip is supposed to seat when it's attached to your trunk lid. You look, there's a flat section at the bottom here and it goes around in a C. You want the C towards the inside of the trunk lid so that this round edge will be on the outside edge and this is actually where you glue. Take some isopropyl alcohol, again, once you clean the trunk lid just go over this flat section as well and make sure it’s clean again so the adhesive sticks as good as possible.
Grab your weather strip adhesive. I’m going to put a thin strip starting in the center just for the first quarter of the edge here. Just go right to the corner with the first section, basically the same length with the weather strip. Again put a thin amount on there. Don’t use a lot; just a thin amount on the weather strip. You don't want it going everywhere on you. Make sure the weather strip is orientated properly so that when we need do put it on, the C faces the inside like we said.
Once the weather strip is on I like to wait 30 to 45 seconds. Give it enough time to get a little bit tacky and then we’re going to put it on, tape it down to hold it. I’m going to show you in a second. The weather strip’s going to sit in this edge. If you look there is a little lip. It goes right up on that lip and then follows it around the entire trunk lid.
Let me show you. You start with the latch and then work your way around. Basically what you want to do is do one section at a time and slowly work your way around the entire trunk lid until you get back to the latch where you started. Always going to have extra; you want to make sure you get the cut as straight as possible and as even as possible. It butts up right against it just like that.
At this point, the weather strip installation is pretty much finished. If you can I suggest letting it set up overnight. By doing that you’ll make sure that the adhesive is dry and the weather strip is bonded properly to your trunk lid. Once it’s dried remove all of our green body tape, reinstall the trunk lid and your installation is finished.
Overall, the trunk weather strip installation isn't too bad. The only tools you're going to need it is a half inch socket to remove the bolts from your trunk lid and then whatever plastic scrapers you use to get the original weather stripping off. That is going to be the longest part of the process, but make sure you do a good job so the new one seals properly. When you put your trunk lid back on the car you may need to adjust the latch to get it to seat properly. The new weather strip is going to be thicker than you’re original and in many cases the trunk may have been adjusted to make up for the old weather stripping. Overall, take your time, let it set up overnight and you'll be back on the road in no time.
