its not a vt seal its a universal seal. I have one in my car, also you need to get the 2 holes welded up that will be left from the standard plastic strips, so roof will need to be painted

mine was a universal seal also. just used locktight super glue to glue 2 off them together so it doesn't have a gap between them.
you only have to weld the holes at top corner of roof if you dont want to put the black on. i'd just get them to glue them back over the top

yeah but the main reason people get the universal seal is to make it look cleaner and get rid of the black section. i was getting my car painted at the time so it wasnt an issue. im very happy with how it has turned out.




best pic i could find, can see if you look closely how it sits

and heres mine... like pumba said they main reason for welding up the holes in the roof is so you can piss off the plastic trim which can trap moisture
