Pros: Looks like the oem weatherstrip
Cons: Plastic buttons too small, will not hold rubber in place, also does not have the metal insert in the front end of the rubber like the original. Don\'t know yet if this will be a problem since I cant get it to stay on the door !

Like every other rubber exterior part I have purchased so far, this one caused me another delay in my project when I started to install it If the plastic buttons were the correct size to hold the rubber in place, the part would probably been ok. I dont know if the lack of the metal stiffening plate in the one end will cause a problem or not. The buttons are not replaceable sooooo .... I guess its got to be returned. I do not know if this is a one time problem or if all of this particular part is made wrong. Once again, I will be looking for NOS parts !

Pros: better than other manufacturers products
Cons: small plastic pins, no metal reinforcements, too thick

The Metro brand weatherstrips are not exact, however they are better than what is available from other manufacturers, of course I have not yet tried the Steele Rubber products so don't take my word for it as gospel. My biggest problem with them is the shape of the rubber material at the ends due to no reinforcement like the originals. The tend to tear where the plastic pins are used to hold them on. BTW, Metro provided me a replacement as a result with no questions asked. The rest of the weatherstrip is OK and fits quite well. The other problem is that they are too thick on the ends and also interferes with rolling up the windows at their highest points. The company needs find an original weatherstrip and manufactuer the repros as close as possible to the originals. Why is that so hard to do???

Pros: Doors shut like new
Cons: No metal in ends like original

Much better product than Soffseal. All it takes is a carbide bit in the die grinder to open the holes a bit where the push-ins go, and they go right in. 72 also used screws in the front end.
