I used a piece of 8mm plastic from Lowe's with duct tape.

In a yellow box at the grocery store labeled HEFTY.
JK. I dunno. Do they still make a vapor barrier for floor underlayment that does not include foam?

And when you're done you can use the box for a doorpanel.

It's a moisture barrier. so go buy some Tyvex (house wrap) at Lowes or Home Depot.

What about sealing the plastic to the metal? Duct tape, but I would be worried over time water would just loosen its grip. What was the OEM stuff?

OEM stuff is a tar-like gooey substance that is in between the plastic and door metal.

I see eletricians use this stuff the most but I think it is called duct seal. It's gray not black like oem and comes in a brick. It's like a very sticky putty used to fill holes. I also seen Eastwood Co. has stuff made by 3m to seal penetrations through the firewall of vehicle. Both pretty much the same concept and would work best IMO.

Thanks for the tips. I just want to make sure I can get my door sealed up before I put new carpet into the truck.

I used the stuff in the attached images from Pep Boys - very sticky, works well. Just scraped/cleaned where the old stuff was leaving enough witness marks so I could follow the same paths as factory.

not trying to steal the thread but wouldn't black RTV or silicone work as well?

Probably, but I think you have to be careful about how flat you make it. Other than holding the barrier in place, it seems that black stuff helps direct any water that gets between the barrier and the inner-door back to openings so it can get to the door drains. That's why I think it's important to follow the routing of the original material - to preserve those intentional drain paths.

My fear was that if the plastic was right up against the steel than it could hold some water and keep the whole area wet. If you run your beads and let them get skinned up pretty good, I would think you could achieve the same thing.
