For the trunk, has anyone tried this supplier:
http://www.restorationspecialties.com/index.html

See item 4766 on page 43 of the catalog, sold by the foot.  I stopped by there a few days ago to buy some other resto stuff, and was going to get a sample but they had the entire spool at the Hershey meet.  I did see a roll of some other similar type weatherstrip in the shop, that one was made by some rubber company in Mogadore, OH.

If that material is the correct density it might work. I'm waiting for a sample from the company below. The way it's folded over and it's design is intriguing. Metro tends to accordian because of air pocket configuration and placement.

Thanks for all the advice, guys. I've let the doors sit closed for about 2 weeks now and weatherstrips are taking a set and the doors aren't as hard to shut now--a firm push will latch them. However, I did have to drill a few different holes for the plastic retaining pins at the top, and the window on one side doesn't seat exactly right in the front slot when it's rolled up. At some point I plan to get the latex strips, but for now I can live with it. At least I don't have to SLAM the doors to get them to shut anymore. Thanks again for all the great input. You guys rock.
