Here's the cross section of the seal, and the channel in the door edge it fits into.




Here's how it fits onto the door

Ewww

It does look like there's a lip on the door frame that could take some standard d-shaped weather stripping. Assuming the lip is wide enough to engage the door...

Yeah, then I'd just need to weld the edges of the door closed so they don't have that silly wide channel exposed all around the door when its shut.

Maybe you can just get rid of the door and weld a sheet of metal or the door itself.

That seal looks great for holding moisture in the groove.
Could you use a cut off wheel to remove the channel and then use a large stick on "D" seal and a stick on flat seal? 2 seals to work as 1

I say it's worth keeping the door. Weld on a few patches, smooth it up and paint it tiffany like the rest.
