    For anyone who has installed metro lower door seals on a cutlass or regal...do they have something similar to the hard plastic inside the molded corner like factory ones did?

    NOPE!!!! I have a set of Metro door seals for my Cutlass, and they are just molded rubber. I'm kinda hesitant on installing them after doing a dry fit. It seems they have to be stretched a tad which worries me for long time quality.

    I have the Metros and they do have to be stretched and glued into place since there is no plastic insert like the factory ones but the key to getting them to stay put is roughing up the seal ( I used coarse sanding bands on my air sander) and roughing up the door on the areas to be glued and I used 3M weatherstrip adhesive (black) to glue them and taped them in place until they were cured.
