Now Alex is going to install dart tape, d.a.r.t., around the edges of the door. It's a real flexible, sticky masking material that we run around the inside edge of the door so that no paint or clear or sealer blow in around the edges of the door. It used to be we would back mask a door before they invented this stuff and was real tricky to try to get all that stuff masked without causing a problem. Now, you put the dart tape in there. It's nice foam stuff. They make it several different diameters. You stick it inside the jam and you can shut the door on it and it seals up real good and you don't have any paint going where you don't want it inside the car.
