With the seal on the door, I never grabbed the seal getting into the plane or never bumped it with my feet stepping over the door threshold. Seal still robust after 130 hours and no wind or rain leaks.
That makes sense. Just to be clear, with the door closed does the outer edge come in contact with the cabin cover at all?
Plans show no gap at the door outer edge/cabin top interface and 0 to 1/16" gap at the inner lip. It sounds like it is best to have 1/8" gap at both places so the only contact is at the seal and pins. This will probably make more sense when I start trimming, just trying to visualize it.
