Aligning "hinge-able" panels like the trunk lid needs to be done with the weatherstripping in place. Since the trunk seal glues on and you don't want to install it permanently yet, you'll need to tape it in place. But you can't let the tape adhesive touch the seal because it will pull off the adhesive coating. Wrap the tape around the seal outside in and then use a second piece to hold it to the car.
