Are you sure there aren't two pieces? One is the seal and the other is the edge protection?

Its plain rubber lip now. And its the right one. I had them check 2 times.

Number 2 has a sticky back that's applied to the door its self and the other one (1) actually fits over the metal and a rubber lip goes over the trim.

I'd like to see some photos when you get it/them installed. I like the flock material, but it is a lint trap and doesn't take too well to cleaning it.

Exactly my thoughts. Tape works well for me.

The fuzzy stuff on the door liner drives me bonkers. I have no idea how to clean it. Tried vacuuming and cleaning with a lint roller. Anyone have any tips?

Tough to replace? I'm more of a mechanical guy, not so much a trim guy.

Well I sure can see why that would bother you. I think that having them mismatched would bother anyone.

I'm different. There's nothing I like more than trim.

Haha, well then maybe you can come over and take my walnut trim out and give it a good buff, i've got some clear coat scratches that are driving me insane. Might be a nice spring project. In return I'll do your gaskets.
