rattling window in wagon

my window has been rattling since i bought my car and it was driving me nits and I dont want to spend 110$ on a new seal. i remembered i had this weatherstripping from an old project car so i tried it. NO more rattle for about 15$


i used it a backup to push the original seal up.

yes i tried Gummyfledge first to no avail.

Update 9/30/2013
once i put the weather stripping on the window several other noises came out: I had to put neoprene between the window and fairing; had to get a peice way up under on right side to get rid of this creak.. Also had to put neoprene under the license plate and frame.

car is soooo much quieter.
