    Thought it was more like double sided tape.
    Needs to be thin so door panel fits flush,

    The stuff on the doors is not unlike soft chewing gum, its quite a thick bead and its really sticky. Infact the best way to describe it is with a Blackadder quote "....the stickiest situation since Sticky the Stick Insect got stuck on a sticky bun" - I've got random bits of it stuck to me and every tool I was using today, try and remove it and it just smears to a thin but just as sticky layer lol.

    I'll reuse what is on there already, honestly its 12years old and you would say its just been put on - I wonder what Honda use....?? I've heard of a non setting mastic but haven't ever used it so don't know if its a similar product.

    I'm interested too in knowing what that stuff is used to attach the water collecting transparent thingy, as I plan on sticking some after market sound deadening behind it so need to take off and reattach it.

    @Nels @exec

    Its behaves/looks a bit like Carafax IDL 99, its very tacky. Not saying this is recommended obviously, but might buy a tube at some point to try it out.

    Cheers.....I was just looking there and came across that Carafax stuff, looks similar but obviously not comparing side by side.

    That adhesive does have holding power I will give it that , however what Honda uses does allow the membrane to be pulled without ripping the sheathing.. that will grip like crazy.

    But good find as it not too expensive.

    Same as in this link
    Would that be better to use?

    Thanks ichiban. I shall try the automotive double sided tape first as that is the least messy to use
