Back when i re-assembled the 71 240Z I rebuilt from the ground up (a long time ago) I waited until almost the end of re-assembly before installing the weatherstripping.

Trial fit as much as possible. I used cheap masking tape to hold strips in place for a minimum amount of time, then removed it quickly.

Use BLACK Permatex Weather Strip Adhesive, instead of the "yellow snot" variety. Clean up immediately & carefully.

Just a few thoughts, they worked well for me.

Thanks for the tip Carl. I just gave it a try and taping it up on the dry run makes it a lot easier when you are cementing in sections. With an old car, the metal trim that I am trying to attach the rubber to is kind of bent and it makes it hard to cement. This should work though.
