Anytime you have a rolled piece of metal and you cut a notch out of it, chances of it making your simple door project a nightmare are way to high Laughing I think even if you use a dull butter knife to cut out your doors, if that metal wants to go somewhere other than where it needs to be, its gonna!

I like black high temp RTV for a final seal on doors that are troublesome. I will add that being liberal with the grease will actually hinder the drying of the silicone. There was a member a while back that ended up with a mess and once he backed off the grease he ended up with a nice seal.
Also let the door weight do its job, if you push down on a door that is sprung the silicone will pull back causing spikes. I just ease the doors down and walk away.
I hope this helps. Smile
