Question Trunk Gasket question

I'm going to replace the trunk gasket on my 57 BelAir sedan.

I'll be ordering it from Steele Rubber Products. I know it attaches to the trunk lid with plastic clips/plugs that are embedded in the gasket. Do I also need a gasket adhesive to further ensure a permanent tight fit?

Yes. 3m black weather adhesive works good. About $12 at parts store.

Thanks. I'll also order the adhesive as well.

Danchuk offers the same gasket for almost half the price of Steele Rubber Products.

Any thoughts, comments or experience with the two?

The Danchuk seals are typically the hardest on the market.
