    Does anyone know what type of adhesive should be used to glue clear plastic to the upper portion of the interior door panel to keep moisture out? I seem to remember it was some type of black tarry stuff that the plastic stuck to but could be removed and re-stuck back on. The bottom part tucks into the bottom part of the door in the long slot.

    Go to the hardware store and buy a roll of the 3M double sided tape that is used to attach the plastic sheet to house windows in the winter. It works great.

      Or you can use 3m strip caulk.

        The top three sides were originally a white strip caulk. The bottom edge, to ensure that it remained tucked in the slot, was a long strip of 2" black tape.

          yes that’s what I use and other than color is a spot on match to what was originally used

            There are numours brands of caulk rope. I would look for one with a high temp of about 140 deg F

            Also there is a seller on eBay selling the precut plastic for various years.

              I purchased the calk strip from DTM on eBay
              IMG_20200105_132159.jpg
              And
              a roll of Morlite from Amazon.
              IMG_20200105_132146.jpg

              To my eye they are the same product.

              IMG_20200105_132056.jpg
              The top is the Morlite
              The bottom is the DMT

              The Morlite is significantly cheaper

                    I have a big roll of Morlite that I don't remember buying. Like finding a $10 bill.

                    Pick up Super 6 poly from hardware store when you're getting the rope caulk.
