SoffSeal is a no.

The latex repo stuff, while I haven't used it, Ive heard mixed reviews.  Looks good, but there may be some longevity/deterioration issues.  Local vendor has had to sell a 2nd set to the same customer after a couple years.

Metro fits/closes great, but might not be perfect if you're worried about the judging sheet.

I think you know the answer then, and it's not cheap!

Yep, do it once and do it right!  They will only get more expensive and harder to find the longer you wait.

And that is a bargain compared to what you will have to pay for the drip-rail moldings.  I have been looking for a left side for 15 months and willing to pay asking price, but have not turned up a single one.  I do have an extra passenger side, if you are interested.
