Poor body seal around doors

I correctly installed new seals around the doors of my 73 911 E. The passenger side still leaks a lot of air. I can clearly see where it is coming from...the leading edge of the door. I am thinking or doubling up the seals on the front side of the door. The second seal looks like it would fit perfectly (fold right into the existing seal) and does not effect the door closing. These are the original type "solid" seals. I don't think this will even look jerry rigged. Is there a better solution? Should I go with the more modern seals that are considerable larger and hollow? It leaked air before the new seals as well.

Thanks,

Chris

it sound to me like you have to ajust the door to make it seal ? you should in no way have to start doubling up door seals . there is some wrong ! you should figure out what that is and repair it the right way .

I switched out the solid seals for the hollow ones and problem solved. The hollow ones are about an inch bigger and solved the problem correctly.
