Full doors with odd additions
So I bought these hard steel doors.
They arrived and I am on the fence about them.
First off there is a little bit more rust than was described to me on eBay.
The other issues can be seen in the pics.
Inside there is on both doors, an installed piece of black tar roofing paper.
Not sure what this is. I am it sure if it is hiding something or was put there for sound proofing. Any ideas here would be appreciated. Is this a trick used to cover rust?
See the other pics. Who ever had them before used some sort of glue or gasket cemet to secure the door weather stripping. It's black and pretty hard to remove, not sure if acetone might take it off.
On the edge of the doors are what looks like some body shop paste that is used to cover over the seams of the sheet metal. See the pic with the snip nosed pliers pointing to it. It's semi hard and soft enough to cut with a razor. Looks like they paint d right over it. I wish somebody would chime in and tell me what this stuff is?
The only really amazing thing about these doors are that they do not have the typical stress crack near the Windows. They Need a little bit more fixing than I thought.
I have dismantled lots of old full doors, and I have never seen these types of additions, has anyone here seen any thing like this?
What do you guys think?
