Initial Z

I've Been a Little Hesitant to Post This
Just Because It's So Damn Corny
But It'll Give You an Idea
Of What the Car Was Like Before

We Made This In 2003
We Thought We Were Hot Shit
Because Nobody Was Making Videos Back Then

Sound/Weather Proofing

Got a roll of Sound insulation:
Acoustical Polyurethane Foam Absorber, Adhesive Back, Skinned, 1/2" Thick, 54" W
Mccaster-Carr part# 5692T61

Bought some  3M Adhesive spray
Cheap insurance
Wanted to make sure the foam stuck

You can also see the door gasket
It's from a Kia Sportage. 2003.
An excellent alternative to $$$ stock door gaskets
Crappy fitting $$$ Aftermarket door gaskets


Needed an alternative to the gaskets for the hatch
I have the aftermarket versions, but don't like the idea of using silicone

Here's what I used:

Edge-Grip Rubber Seal, Bulb Opposite Grabber, 1/8" Edge, 5/8" Bulb W
Part #1120A231
Adhesive Back Foam Rubber Bulb Seal, 1/2" Overall Width, 1/2" Overall Height, 1/4" ID, 10' L
Part# 93085K13


It may be a little overkill, but the hatch is def sealed.
The hatch is a little hard to close. A little too hard.
I may just need some time to break in. 
Time will tell.
