Front/Rear Window seal rubber

Hi all, really quick question, are there any options to buying the front and back window seals other than from the American Scamp Parts site? They want $30 for one window which is fair, but $50 for shipping which I think is too much.
Anything available from a Canadian source?
Thanks
Steve

Check with your local auto glass shop. I got new window channel for $2.35 a foot plus tax locally.

C.R. Laurence of Canada is a primary supplier of rubber weather stripping. I am not sure if they will sell directly to anyone or if you have to go through a distributor, contact them and they will let you know. I used the one piece moulding on my Boler, but they list both one piece and two piece in their catalog. They list a location in Calgary

Thanks guys. Ian that looks like a great start, I will call them tomorrow. Will I'll check with the local glass shops too, so it looks like this window seal rubber is fairly common stuff!? I was thinking it was a specialty Boler product….

You can call Scamp and ask if they will mail it. Mail is cheaper to cross the border.

The two things that are important with the moulding are the glass thickness (which on a Boler is 4.5 mm or 3/16") and the body thickness which is between 1/8"-3/16" on a Boler The two piece moulding with the separate spline cord is what came on your Boler, the one piece with integrated lock is what I used. When you install the mounding make sure it is snug all the way around then add between 3/4" to 1" extra length (the ends overlap) and force the ends together. Rubber shrinks over time and will continue to seat some after the installation. By having the extra length forced into the mounding the ends will stay tight together ... if you don't do this the ends will have a gap in a short time.

Ian would you happen to know the part number for the seal you ordered from CRL? I'd like to order the exact same, at least I know it will work.

I've looked at all the different single piece types you used, but they all seem so similar in widths etc…just don't want to order the wrong one. Assuming they'd even sell it to me.

I don't have the exact part number I used but reviewing their catalog I would use Catalog Number: 10257
The panel width is about 1/8" plus the Ensulite also overlaps the window opening which results in a panel width of about 3/16"window is 3/16" . As a second option I am sure that Catalog Number: 10248 would also work

Crystal Glass has the same rubber seal as Scamp and for the same price $3 a foot. I bought mine from the Langley BC location.
