I had the same problem and decided to fix it before going to the Pilbara
in July. Clark rubber had a huge range, the existing seals were simply flat rubber about 3cms x 4mm, I decided that the best thing to do would be to leave the existing compressed seals in place on the frame, and just glue the new ones on the door to match.
WRONG, more dust than before I 'fixed' the problem.
I think that what was happening was that the increased thickness near the hinge caused a gap at the catch end. I am now going to remove the original seal and see if things improve, if they don't then the whole lot goes and I start again!
