Trunk gasket crap
I spent 3 hours installing a trunk gasket yesterday. Trunk was alined perfectly so I did it on the car (65 coupe) what a pain in the a$$. I took my time and my wife helped. Anyway, I did a real nice job and it looked good. Then for the moment of truth,, freekin foam is so dense or oversize it had the gaps up 1/4" on both sides and 1/8" by the rear window. No way! I took a razor and cut the gasket down. Trunk now closes corectly, gasket job looks like crap. I can't stand to look at it and I know it's gonna leak like the Titanic. This was the Ford gasket I got in the package when I bought the car. Any tips on removing the 1 day old half gasket and 3M adhesive? Is there a better gasket that wont spring the trunk lid?
