    ROFLMAO! Don't worry man, when I did mine... holy crap I broke like every clip off, so then I tried to use that yellow sealant stuff from autozone for weather stripping... and that didn't work very well. So needless to say I F*cked up a 20dollar POS rubber strip from LMC and wasted my time and lost my pride. haha. now my tailgate is all russted to crap from water getting in, i suppose.

    haha , that makes me feel a little better. at least i got mine in... after i tried pulling the rear window out for more clearance, reinstalled it backwards(oops) and ripped up the inside rubber (doh!) but two hours later all done! kinda bent up and crappy lookin, but a seal is a seal right? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
