I hope you're hearing it-- you did a great job describing & illustrating that process. I'm saving it for later. Thanks a lot for sharing what you've learned.

No problem. After much trial and error. This is what the corners should look like. Mind you I have not glued it down yet as I need to clean everything up and remove all the dust thats accumulated in seal gutter. So the straight sections are pretty simple to wedge into place. I found that pushing the rubber upwards towards the glass on each corner is what worked best for me and actually kept the seal in place with out glue. if you stretch it, it will just lift up.

Not exciting but this past week involved getting the car registration back into my name and not jointly with my brother. With AIRCARE gone there is no need to have it out of the lower mainland. Lots of small hoops to jump through as it also involved changing my valuation policy too. As my brother is 300 miles away it took a bit of mail exchange to accomplish that. He also had to sign the tax form as the car is deemed a "gift", so there is no tax issues. We discussed the collector plate but with the need for an inspection I told him that is not an option. I will save some money too as I had redundant coverage with ICBC and now only need the liability.

I have asked my insurer to keep and eye out for a 510 plate for me as I will insure car at end of April...should the sun ever come back.

Next week will be about removing intercooler and checking all my methanol and water spray systems.

I counted the other day I've not worked on mine in 217 days, that's when I test fitted the engine. 142 days since I last saw my Coupe! I need to make some more effort.

Finished the Datsport trunk seal. Here's some photos. People please make sure you mock it up with it installed correctly before you cut the seal. Rookie mistake I installed it the incorrect way the first time and cut the seal. After speaking with Baz and getting the correct information on installing it. I realized I shot my self in the foot as the seal was slightly shorter now during mock up. creating a gap in the seal. I had to cut a small piece to fill that area. Which sucks ass because it would have look so much cleaner had I not cut the seal prior to doing my research.
Per Baz make sure you lightly dust talc powder on the seals prior to closing the trunk. He's says the seals can be a little sticky. I also used Palmolive liquid soap to help in moving and wedging the seals in place. Then on the glued areas use some light sand paper to scuff that section prior to glueing. Keep a cup of warm water handy and paper towel or a shop rag to remove any glue residue of your fingers and seal if it gets messy. I used painters tape to hold down the glued section of the seal.

Got the door seals halfway installed on both doors. Just need glue the bottom half section and I will be done with those. Took a few time to get it installed correctly. Baz helped big time with installing it correctly into the seal channel. Took 3 times and a lot of palmolive soap. lol glad it will be glued hopefully today. Once I'm done chauffeuring my wife and kids around.
