Installing plexiglass windows/rubber seal

Help! I have an '82 Perris Pacer. I'm putting new plexiglass windows on the ends. I am also putting up new carpet/hulliner on the interior walls. Any onsight on which is easier...putting the windows/rubber seal in first or put up the hulliner first. My thought is hulliner 1st but then will that make it harder to install the rubber gasket and plexiglass?

I would put the liner in first, the finished product will look better.
If by chance you can't get the window in you can use the seal as a
ruler to mark out a clean line to cut to.

Cool Sealant

Whatever you do, DO NOT use silicone sealant.

Silicone does not adhere to fiberglass well but does coat the FG with silicone which prevents anything else from sticking.

hull liner 1st. if you have the right gasket it will fit over the liner giving you a neat finish. Scamp sells the window gasket which fits over their "hull liner" many call "rat fur".
