    Hey guys, I've been running my dart without a hood to cowl seal. Noticed the other day the hood was rubbing some paint, so I ordered the hood to cowl seal. This thing shows up with some small metal clips. Does anybody know how to install those with the weather strip?
    Thanks guys!

      I’d have to pop the seal with the clip in it out of the cowl to see how the clip is installed. I can do that tomorrow if you don’t get a more definitive answer tonight or early tomorrow

          Have any of you bought this seal that wasn't shipped rolled up ?
          The one I got was never any good as I couldn't get it to straighten out so it kept pulling the clips out

          You mentioned the hood was rubbing paint. On the cowl or underside of the hood? Regardless, that seal is thick and curious if you install it, the hood may not close properly.

          The hood was rubbing close to the corners, on the cowl part, hood looked okay. I have not installed it yet. But I will post pics when I do!
