poor design aspect

Now that it's fall, I constantly have leaves and tree debris getting stuck in the little space between the glass and the rubber piece in the windows of my car. Anybody else have this problem? It's super annoying to get out and a lot of times falls into the door. The rubber strip should come right up against the glass to prevent this.

Yep, same. Then the tint gets minor marring. I can wipe it off if I scrub but it's annoying. The window track is a bear to get to, I tried removing the door panel and vacuuming it out. There's a secondary plastic shield covering it

yep! Basically every window I'm picking crap out of the gaps everyday also haha. Glad I'm not the only one.

I like the doughnut idea.. might have to give it a try.

Pine needles!! Almost impossible to pluck out with your fingers! I usually fire up the blower every few days and hit the cracks and crevices at an angle...

That sucks, thankfully there aren't any trees near my car at work or home. That would drive me nuts to come out and see leaves stuck in there.

The worst is when you look at your car after ages of detailing it and you think great job! Then you see this...Click image for larger version

My car is garaged 99% of the time but it is unbelievable how much crap gets stuck in all the nooks and crannies. Apparently I am more OCD than I realized.
