    The new stuff should work great then. Metro’s finish is much better so with the new hollow core it should be the best.

    So what's the proper way to install these? Cleaning my channel I noticed there is some seam sealer Ill need to re-apply, but do I need to adhesive the whole channel? I noticed the instructions say to put a thin bead on both surfaces and wait for it to be tacky, but we all know how cumbersome and difficult that is when your handling a very long continuous piece of rubber.

    I didn't use ANY adhesive on my trunk seal. Zero issues. Once you get it seated properly, it should stay put.

    I used a thin bead of weather strip adhesive around the metal channel.

    (Test fit first and cut to proper length.)

    I glued the ends together with the same stuff.
    The ends should meet at the bottom center.
