The door is unpainted under the stripping. The thing for me is that that stripping is contoured to the door shape, and tapers off at the end, that's why I question where to get it. I don't think you can get it at Lowe's
or Home Depot
. It's as if it come on the door from the factory, and the only way to replace the original is to get a new door. However; yes the seal is glued with an epoxy to the door, and the bare metal is exposed one you pull away the weatherstrip. I tried to cover the exposed area with touch up paint as called for by the instructions. As I mentioned earlier, make sure you use the stripping tool properly, or the weatherstripping will not come off cleanly and look like a botched job.
