Gordie,

Try these guys:

Search under "General Use Parts". If it exists, they should have it.

Bob,
I think I found something close enough.  Thanks for the link.  Going to order a few feet and see how it works.

Been a while.... pretty sure it was 1/4 X 1/4.  It was for the side windows where the glass fits to the frame.  There is another piece that fits into the outside of the frame and slides on the track.  This is all 4104 stuff.  And, another piece to seal the whole window frame into the body.

tekebird and anyone else interested in window rubber info,
I checked with Luke, the OEM for the window frames were subcontractors that made most of the aluminum phone booths in the US.  Guess what?  They're no longer in business.  I did find a perfect replacement though at C.R. Lawrence (or CRL).  They have rubber extrusions for almost anything you could imagine.  It comes in 50' rolls.  I'll need 140' just for the side sliders, so I ordered 200'.  Should have some left over if anyone is in need.  I believe I also found a weather seal for the outside perimeter of the frames at the same place.  There are a number of online retailers that sell CRL products.
