yeah my poppers you can barely see because of the black striping it pokes though and the black windows. and it will only stick out as much as it needs to so when it is pressed it will nearly be flush with the strip

How are you going to seal it so that when it pops back down water stays out. I was just thinkin that there might be a chance of water getting into the door.

the amount of water that will get though will be stuff all not even worth worrying about and it doesnt matter if a bit does anyway it all drains out though the bottom same as when water gets through between the window and it poor excuse for a seal
