    My repro door weatherstrip has some Phillips screws and some black plastic push-in fasteners. Since my painter took the old weatherstrip off, I don't know which fasteners to use where. Input?

    I remember the factory weatherstrip using screws up front and maybe the plastic push ins in rear? Less sure on the rear.

    believe mine on my '72 used all small phillip-head screws.

    I've stumbled upon this issue with Soffseal brand door weatherstripping as well. They provided 2 Phillips head screws as well as 5 black push-in type retainers per side. Based upon what I'm seeing on the '70 on which I'm currently installing them, only 4 of the push-in retainers are needed for the rear if the screws are used on the front of the door. The weatherstripping seems to have larger holes to accommodate the screws up front and metal reinforcement for those particular holes. I'm betting Dave is correct.

    My memory still works ok I think. If it wasn’t 1 degree out I would take a drive to the junkyard and see if they still have the 70 Skylark 2 door there I picked parts off.
