    The seal stripping that DMCH sells that comes in a roll didn't even last a year until it split and cracked at the bends around the door.

    If you're referring to the outer glue-on ones, that's exactly why I had them reproduced in tear-resistant silicone.

    I have to vouch for martin's silicone outer door seals. It's the only real option in my opinion. Oh, and McMaster Carr sells "compatible" inner door seals in bulk lengths:

    Chris - I like that site. What seals did you use there?

    I need to take measurements of mine to match the correct part number. I'll try and report back soon.

    Great - thanks. I noticed 2 different part #s; is one for the inner and the other for the outer?

    Both part numbers are for inner door seals. When I measured mine, these two part numbers matched the closest. I'm pretty sure either will work. The second part number would have an overall tad shorter height.
