sealing access doors

Well, down to about 3 small water leaks in the shell....been at this about 3 weeks and each time it rains I spend time inside with a bright light.....had to re-rivet quite a bit and have had real issues around the 2 stationary glasses....but it's getting better!
My last big leak issue is at the access doors and so far I have not found a replacement gasket that will work...this is a 68 Tradewind and had a rubber type gasket in a slot originally.....
I did replace 2 windows (two more to go) supplied by Inland RV with good results...and have gasketed several surviving windows also with good results....cheating with a simple outside "lock" for now. Attaching a before and after...

Great work! Leaks are a pain to find....especially those last little pesky ones!
