Wet floorboards

Recommended Posts

I've had a years long battle with wet floorboards after rains, and dripping inside from the door frames approximately where the dash starts. I finally noticed the weather stripping is 2 parts glued together which is now failing. What ignorant fool at Nissan thought this was a good idea?


Anyway I tried to glue it back together using this 3M product and it is a piece of crap. You are supposed to spread it thinly and evenly on both surfaces. It is impossible to do. The stuff tacks up in 3 seconds and starts balling up as you try to spread it. If you try to mush it together it doesn't stick for about 10 minutes and will pull off both sides and drop the weather strip if you aren't holding constant pressure across the 3 feet you are trying to fix in one go for a seamless waterseal.


I'm so mad at it I'm having a hard time not throwing my phone across the room. 8569ed7f3cd11d4f38cc5b228c12894f.jpgca9c0e463c2082d64782be980edcef7a.jpg

Had the same issue on my 96, I cleaned both surfaces with an alcohol pad, then spread a thin coat of super black rtv, just thick enough to hold itself together long enough to get it all into position, then closed the door gently, let it sit overnight & was good to go.
