OK....I have a box of the repop "brand"? weather stripping. I understand the whole staple thing for the door panel side, and am making good progress on that. My question, is that for the "door" side, does the 45 degree angled end go towards the front of the car? It seem reasonable that the angled end would match the "shape" of the car. The right angle cut should go on the door jam end of the car.
I put the drivers side on this evening, all the holes lined up, so I smacked them into place. Until I got to the front of the car, and now it seems that I have some "overhang"into the corner, where the door and the pillar meet.
Is this an operator error? It seems like it should only go one way, and yet.....

On a 67/68 the 45 goes to the rear above door handle, on 69/70 45 goes to front.

That's the way it goes, you just need to move it back to the edge of the door, if the clips on the strip don't line up with the holes in the door, then you have the wrong strips.
