    Mate your pictures don't show a great deal, take a photo of the end of the strip so I can see a cross section.

    I worked out the door opened in from the photos of the frame, the door has to shut against the rubber so it's no good the rubber facing out is it, needs to face in so the door touches it

    Hmm try this one here you can see the rubber curve facing outside, I think I just need to turn it around to face the inside now. When door closes the rubber will hit under middle somewhere but there will be a gap cosmetic wise looking at the door outside at the bottom where the ridge is, I assume I need to cover that with a weather shield.

    And yea it will be like this where the gap at front will look like its not touching bottom, so assume here I just add a weather guard to cover the void gap?

    The gap is hidden from view with the weather bar but that in itself still has to be high enough to clear the weather strip otherwise it hit the weather strip when opening the door

    Just as an example using this picture the weatherstrip would be fitted here with the rubber bump/flap facing left

    If you're still struggling with this then honestly you need get a joiner in, I'm actually worried about you using the router now
