The weather seal option makes it simple to stiffen the front edge of the door. The photo is of the forward lower edge of the pax door. This also gives a nice deep seal to keep the front edge of the door from 'catching air'

Both the forward and rear vertical consist of a standard "L".

The forward edge of the door has to be trimmed a little an the rear 'L' is pressed closed a few degrees to make door closing smoother.

Nice door trim.

What did you use for material on the door edge and windshield trim?
