its not the stiffness of the round part of the seal thats the problem its the thickness of the rubber itself... When the round part gets crushed as the door closes, its thicker than stock. Yes desert heat does help but it takes more then 1 day .

I found that the corners where they built up the rubber for strength were also an issue.

Thanks guys. I'm going to use my heat gun on the weatherstripping and see if that solves the problem.

I'm gonna try the heat gun too. It's more direct on it than the sun. It was so hot in South Dakota my outside mirror glass was falling out.
