I pulled all that debris out last year, and didn't replace it. Seems to fly the same. Cleaned the inner walls with lacquer thinner. Now nice and shiny.

Cindy, any tips on taping the side stripes to get them straight, level, and lined up correctly?

I received these with the headliner the black was the old seal and the tan is the new with 2 ribs is the best I can describe them. Is there a rubber gasket or seal at each end. The old was stapled in place then the skylight on top of that.
Bruce this goes in-between the skylight and wooden support on three sides (not the front) correct. The beading I received with my headliner from airtex is only 53 inches long and does not seem to be long enough. Called airtex and they said it only goes across the back edge. Doesn't seem right to me seems I should have recieved a longer piece.
