Doesn’t look extreme. Annoying I’m sure but nothing a little food grade silicone won’t seal.

Permatex black high temp RTV silicone and plastic wrap will fix that.
Open both doors and clean the door seals with acetone it evaporates fast.
The lay the plastic wrap over your door openings making sure it covers the door seal area and no wrinkles are in it and tape it down.
Then run a bead of the RTV on your door seals and lower the doors. Do not push on the doors let their weight do the job. Let it sit overnight then open the doors and peel off the plastic wrap and trim any excess RTV off the door seal edges.
Auto Zone has the Permatex Black RTV in a caulk tube.
Always remember slow and steady wins the race.

I'm not sure of this but due to some Spammin that one of the Members was going through, our Sheriff had to delete some Recently Joined Members.
