I did this on the drivers door of my '87 60. At first it was kind of a brain teaser, but a friend who happened by looked at it and saw the solution. You move the clips that come with the piece(they slide back and forth) until they line up with the holes on the door. Then it just snaps in. Be careful not to bend the metal of the strip or it won't lie flat. I had to add a tiny bit of RTV to seal the front end 'cause I'd bent the strip in a slight "U" shape. Good Luck.
