Where to buy seals for jalousie window

Does someone could help me with information about where to find the seals to repair a jalousie window? I attached pictures of the seals that I am looking for (Note that I found where to buy one of them as you will see, if it can help someone else). Thanks in advance for help.

P.S when rooting around a junk yard, always carry spray for bees, hornets, and bang on the car, Rv before poking your head in.

You might find that pick up bed caps with windows might work too
Actually it's HEHR windows, I only mention that because it might make the search easier,"mister".

Okay.So I had some lexan windows cut to the exact size of the originals and got new rubber from Scamp. Tried it by myself. Tried it with a buddy. Ended taking it to a friend at with an auto body shop. Took three of us a good day and a half to get the two windows in. One guy inside to keep it from falling in and two of us outside using screwdrivers on the rubber. If one of them ever comes out I will probably just sell the trailer before I try to install one again. Probably the hardest thing I have ever done in my life.

Jay, maybe it would have helped to use the right tools. Screwdrivers are for screws, not gaskets and certainly not the lockstrip.

We got the bottom of the window in and each of us got on either side and using a pair of flat head screwdrivers slid them along between the rubber and the window until it popped into the groove. The difficult part was that everything had to be soaped up so it would slide in. Slippery stuff. Once in place we used a lock strip tool to insert the lockstrip. Thanks!

Glad you got the windows it. I'm going to caution anyone putting in a window, to be extremely careful using any metal tools. Metal can scratch and/or score the gelcoat. There's a cheap tool made for installing windshields that works great. I've got a bunch of these and having found many uses for them. For instance, it's a fantastic burnishing tool for stained glass!

I can only thank you very much, Josiah, for the great pictures of a really nice upgrade. It gives me a lot to think about, plus photos I can show my fiberglass guy to illustrate what I want to do with it...
