Drip Shield

Do you have any security film laying around? On some cars that I dont want the door panel to get soaked during installation, I will use a section of security film, sometimes 2, approximately 30 inches long by about 10 inches wide and slip them betwen the gasket and the glass(overlapped). I use a 6 mil window film for this and it works great. It will curve away from the glass and point towards the floor. Water will drip off the film and never hit the door panel. To start, I will generally cram two 5 way tools between the gasket and glass to give the security film an easy entry. It helps to wet the security film just enough to help it slide. This is also a neat trick to keep gaskets from soaking up excess water and causing fingers along the bottom. I have other pieces that are shorter for use with smaller windows...When I am done I just spray them down and stick them to my layout glass ready to use for the next job...They last a long time if you dont abuse them.

I havent had time to read EVERYTHING posted on this site, so I am not sure if someone has posted this tip before
