Has anyone replaced theirs, and if so, how did you fasten the new strip to the plastic door panel? No two people have yet given me the same answer, and I'd like to remove the bubba repair I have now with something as oem as possible.

Which door window weather stripping are you talking about? The felt at the top side of the door (bottom of the window) has little clips that attach to the edge of the door and snap into place. The rubber seal going around the front and top of the glass on the body fits into the chrome/stainless trim to stay in place.

Can you be a little more specific of which weather stripping you are talking about?

Are there staple holes or retainer clip marks in the plastic? Is the door panel on the other side intact?

Staples would be my guess as that's how it's been attached on any of the old Mopars I've had, but I've never looked in a Challenger.

I am assuming that what i found is a bubba replacement, as it was held in with a mismatched set of 1in. screws and large amounts of a thick and flexible glue. I don't see any evidence of staples, and the existing and replacement fuzzies have the same size and pattern of holes for attaching (?) I have yet to locate eithe a drawing or photo of untestored original that would show how it was held in place. With all of the other 70-specific features in e bodies, I wonder if it was unique to this model year.
