Best material for replacing rear exit door gasket?

My rear exit door is leaking badly because of the gasket, which is in bad shape and actually missing entirely on the lock side. I want to replace it completely but I'm not sure what material to use or how best to attach it (glue of some sort, I assume?).

Anyone have any tips or suggestions or videos I can watch on how to do this?

Find a 3/4" weather stripping that suits you. On mine the stripping surrounds the door, clean that surface and stick the new seal on. I have to do my double doors.

Do you generally just wrap a single piece all the way around the door? Or do you miter-cut a separate piece for each edge?

I'll probably miter and glue the corners. I need 28'

I increased the height of the emergency door from the normal 54" to 74". Doing this caused me to add to the rubber gasket material surrounding the door. I went to the local Freightliner dealer and ordered a new gasket. I used the best parts of the old gasket to fill in the 40 inches (20 inches per side). I used PLS-40 to adhere the gasket to the door jam as well as to hold the pieces together. It works wonderfully.
