targa weatherstrip install?

In process of reassembling a '72 targa after new paint, etc. Any good videos or instructions on putting new weatherstripping around targa bar, windshield and A pillars, etc??
I've done it to several 914's over the years, but the 911 looks very different!
TIA

I've never done the seals around the glass, but have done the Targa bar.

I pre-fit a couple times dry just to get a feel for the process, then applied adhesive. Marked what seemed to be the center and worked my way out evenly to both sides. Came out mint

And there is info on the coupe in the Targa manual as well.

Thanks! Seems like many adhesive holding the seals on the 911. The 914 has a metal frame that screws into the roll bar and the seals slide in.
Looks like I'll go thru a bit of rubber adhesive!

When I installed my rear top to bar seal it took a few tries to get it right.

This thread may be helpful.

Targa seal install in Austin TX? Dan Petchel-recommended?

This too
