Can't be. The door wouldn't close right.
Besides, the wear would reside towards the back of the jambs.

You'd have to be a mutant to drag your feet there...

The paint is rubbing thru on my hood from all the
Duke of Hazzard hood slides I do and the door
window sills also have wear from getiing in and out
thru the windows cause the doors are welded shut....
Is the OEM Ford paint just thin or what?

Paint is a finish, not a shield like they have on the USS ENTERPRISE, lol...

And with today's EPA demands, anything that has solvants sold in the US, simply ain't worth a sh#t.
So rubbing on paint will not make it shine more.
The only thing that will shine is sheet metal, for a short while.
