Here is Michael B.'s door seal install pirep:

 

I thought I'd post some information and photos of my seal replacement project on my 1977 B55 Baron. I purchased a cabin door seal, emergency window seals, baggage door seal, wing and tail root seals from Guy Ginby at GEE BEE. My plan is to do a little at a time as I have very little free time to tackle the whole project all at once. Besides, I can't have her unable to fly for a long period of time, as the weather is finally getting nice up here in Milwaukee.

 

I have completed the Cabin Door Seal replacement. This part of the project took about 10 hours of actual working time, with a lot of "waiting to dry time" in between. As you can see from the "Before" photos, the old seal was rubber, dried out, and had folds and cracks in it so that there was a significant amount of air that would rush in.

 

 

 

 

 

I removed the old seal to find multiple levels of old glue and scratched paint. As you can see, when the plane was repainted in 2009, they did not remove the seals, nor repaint the inside of the door and jam. The old seal pretty much came off in a few large pieces and lots of little ones that I was able to pull off with a needle nose pliers. I used Peerco 321 adhesive remover and a LOT of elbow grease to get most of the old glue off. I used Goof Off on small pieces of ScotchBrite to remove the stubborn areas of glue and the old yellow paint. I wiped it all down with IPA.

 

 

 

 

I then taped off both sides of the door jam (the cabin side and the door side). I used four coats of an aircraft primer and then three coats of a white gloss aircraft paint with sufficient drying time in between coats and prior to application of the new glue and seal.

 

I followed the instructions for the glue, mixing about one large drop of catalyst to one ounce of glue in a glass jar. I applied the mixture to the entire length of the seal and to the perimeter of the door. Getting the new seal to set in the channel correctly was a bit of a task as I was doing this alone, I had not removed the door and the glue was extremely tacky. The seal comes in two pieces, the first is a short section that fits on the forward area of the door over the hinges. This piece was relatively easy to place as it is small and thinner than the main seal. For the main seal, I very carefully started at the door latch and worked my way upward. I would peel the seal back a few inches every once in a while when I wasn't completely satisfied with how it was seated in the groove. I repeated the same process working down from the latch and the underside of the door. I trimmed the extra length off using the razor knife that Guy provided. I allowed this to dry overnight before trying to close the door.

 

The next day, I tried to close the door and found that it was extremely tight, so much so, that I couldn't get the door to close all the way so that the outside latch laid flat. I adjusted both latches as far out as I could get them and this improved things.

 

Overall, I think this part of the project turned out pretty well considering I have never done this before. Things I would suggest are 1. Take the door off (I tried to remove the door by removing the four screws on the hinges. This did not work for me. I think the hinges were glued or frozen together. I did not want to risk damaging the hinges, so I left the door on and struggled). 2. I would get a buddy to help. 3. After speaking with Guy, I would heed his advice and let the glue on the door dry completely by using a hair dryer, then apply the seal with wet glue on it.

 

I have to thank Guy for all of his help and for providing me with a superior product. I look forward to the next task...The baggage door.
