I would go to the hardware store and get some self-adhesive weather stripping.  It will form a nice airtight gasket (that’s probably equivalent to what Lane used, back in the day).  Cut the corners at a 45 angle to get a tight fit.

This kind works pretty well:

Subject: replacing cabinet gasket seals

Hello ECNers,


We have a number of well-preserved Lane cabinets that need the sealing along the doors replaced. Does anyone have experience with this? Any warnings or recommendations?
