    leaky doors

    I noticed some posts on BAC that indicate warm cabins down to approx
    zero.

    For the last 3 years I have been diligently searching for why I
    cannot get the cabin warm. During the annual this July we found the
    boot on the firewall that the rudder cable goes through in bad shape
    and replaced it. Still no good. The other day while in the air, in
    frustration, I pushed forward the co-pilot seat and found I could
    clearly see big daylight on the back of the door on both sides from
    the latch down. Not so when not flyinmg. Now that I am sure of the
    problem I am faced with the solution.

    The existing weatherstrip is old but is all there.
    Do I try adding some stripping on the lower half of the door, or is
    there a good way to keep the door from flaring when in the air?

    Need some ideas. Winter flying has not been fun and my wife is not
    often interested unless we are going to Florida.
