    Just a heads-up: Original (two piece) design main door seals were TWO piece, and did not require any glue application. As far as I am aware, the correct Precision-branded pattern parts are one piece (actually two sections glued together) and simply push on the pinch seam. The 'U' channel on the seal should be tight enough to hold it onto the pinch seam. No glue required.

    You're very likely to be taking them on and off several times whilst you get the door & window frame fitting right, so you are better off not gluing them anyway.

    Never knew that. Continuous development I guess.

    Thank you for your advice, very helpful.

    The door shell was lined up first as you suggested and I think fits pretty well, makes good contact with the door seal where it should. As far as I can tell I have run out of adjustment on the window frame.

    I was going to use a shim to push the lower hinge out which would help with the window frame sticking proud but would also push the lower part of the door out as well?
