w111 Cab door seals

As regulars here know I recently purchased a 1970 280se Cab. The car had been repainted and never had the door seals installed. The best price I have found is from Miller's at $245 each. My doors do not have any form of seal mounting hardware and I am told that the seals simply glue into place... is this correct? What glue should I be using?

Thanks,

Ron

That's a decent price for the seals -- I doubt if you'll do better. We could match it, but just barely. Use 3M Super Weatherstrip Adhesive, available from any auto parts store.

Removing and reinstalling seals

This post brings up a question I was considering asking. I wish to replace the seals on my 111 coupe but will be painting it at some future time. Will the 3M weatherstrip adheisive permit the removal and reinstallation of door seals without trashing the seals? Same goes for the hood pad. I don't wish to buy new seals again come repainting time.
Thanks,
Tony

No, don't do it until after you paint.
