    Need tips on dust proofing a glass cabinet

    I have a double door glass cabinet that need some dust proofing, here's some pictures:
    1. Front gap(±6mm).


    2. Side(±6mm) & top(±7mm) gap - closed.


    3. Side(still ±6mm) & bottom(±4mm) gap - closed.


    4. Side & top gap - opened(I don't think this matters since the doors are closed most of the time anyway).


    5. Side & bottom gap - opened(I don't think this matters since the doors are closed most of the time anyway).


    I'm thinking of framing the inside of the glass for the side & bottom gaps, and the ceiling for the top gap, not sure what to do with the front/door gap. Now the material, which is flexible enough so it won't hinder the door's articulation; brush seal(it looks like a strip of yarn/hair) or foam/sponge weather strip(is there any difference between foam & sponge?)? Also, which is better for the strips, too thick or too thin?

    Thanks for your time.

    Typically cabinet hinges are adjustable and you should be able to almost close the vertical gap between the doors by adjusting the hinges...
