Sealing seals! Glueing the roof weather strips down.

    I've noticed the edges of the rubber roof weather strips have come away a bit from the metal bodywork, creating a slight raised edge, especially when the roof is closed. It doesn't look ideal and can only encourage deterioration of the seal's integrity in the long run.

    I'm also hoping to apply a burgundy leather vinyl to the roof of my silver Copen. This will entail pulling away the rubber sealing strips that run top and bottom of the rear roof panel to get a neat fit.

    A lot of the roof rubber seems to be finished off with either glue or tape. Can anyone recommend a good seal fixative to keep the seals lying flat against the bodywork? I'm thinking along the lines of some sort of double sided tape.

    Thanks in advance.
