John,
I am questioning whether your trunk weather stripping is original or not. The texture of the surface is very smooth compared to the latex ones I have seen. To me it looks like a AM softseal weather stripping, however, if you tell me that it is latex covered foam then I will take you at your word. Would you be kind enough to check it again?

Thanks,

James

It's original to the car, and has a smooth skin with a soft foam core (not solid rubber); has the usual single small bead of black adhesive in the trough, and the small lip on the outboard edge all the way around that seals to the radius on the panels.

I was told that the orange mark indicated the center of the weatherstripping... and that it was supposed to be offset to the right... guess that was not 100%.
Most orange centering marks are offset to the right; doesn't mean they were supposed to be that way. :)
