Sure hope this helps... Im not the greatest at write up which is why I have no build thread yet lol.
Here's the the lip facing away.
Here's the round corners of the trunk. As you can see Im using my had to hold it in position.
Got this from Baz today. Update: 3/15
Where seals go around curves it stretches the rubber & causes the lip to stand upwards.
This will cause the trunk to lift up in the two top corners.
By compressing the seal, ie. By pushing the seal into the corners & compressing the seal this will then cause the lip to lay flat.
When the seal is located in the groove along the top edge close to the glass and laying flat, it can be secured with a drop of loctite401.
Just before the curve commences.
Work the seal around the corner compressing it as you go ensuring it lays flat.
You will need to work the seal on the fender side so the seal has some slack.
Once around the curve secure with 401, just dots.
The top corners are the most important.
