Tape Window Channel?

Recommended Posts

Hello, noobie with a quick question. Is this the style of window channel felt to tape? I have seen some videos of people taping felt but theirs seems to be a large lip on the inside with an inch or more touching the glass. This is flush on both sides with 1/4" of the glass touching that felt. This is a 2001 VW Jetta. Thank you everyone.

Does the outside need to be taped to when I'm hand cutting? 

 

Nope.  

Make sure you tape the inside as far in is you can,, BUT, make sure you do this first before you do anything else.  If the felt gets wet at all, the tape won't stick properly.  

If the tape won't stick to the felt because of Armor All or whatever,, then wipe the felt with straight alcohol and let it dry, then apply tape.
