Pass through door seal

Man o man, I have searched far and wide. So many different sizes. And of course, measuring a squished gasket is darn near impossible.
My W&P 34 has a minor leak through one of the front pass through doors. I am 92% sure it is the seal because I can see "dirt trails" where water weeped through.
What is a good source for replacement D seal? Town Killer (Amazon) has a S ton but most of their stuff is junk anyway. Anyone have real life experience with replacing this door seal??

I've replaced many of those seals. About any of the readily available seals are pretty good in that application. I prefer the white vinyl coated seals to the black rubber, but it really doesn't matter.

Is yours the single or double "D"?

Currently a single D, but I contemplated either a ribbed or double. The issue with a double (in my mind) is that the hinge side may push one of the bulbs over the door frame when I close it. The hinge side pivots as you close while the sides and bottom will press more evenly. Hard to describe exactly what I mean, but hopefully you get the idea.

I know exactly what you mean. I think a smaller double D seal would work better in that situation than a larger single D seal. Just get one a little thicker than the gap between door and frame.

Thanks for the suggestions and the link folks. I had a hard time finding a double that would fit the width (tape side) without the bulb height being too small. I ended up getting a single that was near exact width and 1.5 times the compressed existing seal height. Its a $35 gamble but gotta srart somewhere! I'll poat up what happens in hopes it will help others.
