Door Seal Mod

I did the door seal mod today. I would not have believed it would have worked if I would not have done it myself. No more door squeak/rattle and no more window whistle it rides a lot quieter just like new. Instead of using ($18 for 20ft)3/8 surgical tubing. I used ($5 for 20ft) 3/8 vinyl tubing from Home Depot.

The door seal mod is where you put a piece of tubing inside the existing door seal.

Did the 20ft cover all four doors? I had a friend that did this a while back. The one thing I remember he said was put soapy water in there.
