Tried the contact adhesive. Seems to have worked fine.
Thanks for the advice guys.

A way i was taught to secure rubber gaskets and seals was to use an impact adhesive like evo stick. Cost both surfaces, when ready to position, reactivate it using MEK (methyl ethyl ketone)?

If it ain't broke, fix it till it is. If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem. Lack of funds is the mother of ingenuity

A good quality spray adhesive is the way to go.

I've just fitted new rubber door seals to my Bay Window. The main problem is that they will not stay in place on the rounded edge at the bottom of the doors. Tried double sided tape but that didn't work.
Anyone any ideas on how to get them to sit in their channel properly?
