TR2/3/3A Weather strip adhesive


Jedi Warrior

I am trying to attach the weather stripping to the bottom of the doors on my Long Door 54 TR-2. 3M Super Weather strip Adhesive is worthless! The first time you close the door, the strip comes right off. I used a 3M spray adhesive on my carpets, works great! I wish it came in a tube. I tried to spray the gap in the wx strip and you end up wearing the stuff.

Anybody found something that works?

On the TR3A the weather stripping is held by spring clips that go into holes in the bottom of the door. The TR2 may be different though.

The TR-2 long door has a metal strip at the bottom of the door, on the inside. It has a "V" shaped weather strip that slides onto the trim; and needs adhesive to hold it on.

The spray contact adhesive also comes in a can, with a different brand - Weldwood. If you think that contact adhesive would work try getting a small can of it. Then you can brush it on.

I like this stuff works very well, I live in the Evergreen State.

I've used the 3M shown above and also Permatex Black Super Weatherstrip Adehesive. Both work very well.

Might have to go to a non-chain parts store. I get mine locally thru old family parts store. Marine dealers sell it too as it has a minimum order when purchsed business wise.

3 M makes stuff for ever thing and direction to follow but clean is always number one. I use 3 M emblem cement on most things comes in tube like thick super glue for painted areas. Madflyer
