rubber for side windows

So frustrating, working on replacing the exterior rubber (glazing bead) and rubber bulb "P-strip" for our 81 Perris Pacer's side windows, ugh Having a heck of a time locating the correct materials, especially the "P-strip" (it has a channel). Anyone out there know of any resources? Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thank you

I do know of a resource but it's flipping expensive.

For the type of weatherstripping you call P strip its referred to as bulb. If you head to a company that operates helicopters, specially Eurocopter Astars or otherwise known as AS350 (Eurocopter within the past year rebranded to the parent company's name and is now AirBus helicopters)

They use this seal around the cargo doors. It's about 1/2-3/4 inch bulb with a channel at a 90 that's 3/8 inch. The channel is inpregnated with metal that clamps to an edge.

I'm trying presently to find a non-aviation supplier due to inflated paper trail costs in aeronautical parts.

Another source would be Dart Aerospace. They have it as well. Tell them the above info and that you want some for non aviation purposes and they might cut you a deal.

We are talking dollars per foot not cents.

Try perfectfit.com. I have no idea what your trailer uses but I did get rubber weatherstrip for my Uhaul windows there. Might be worth a look.

When I worked in a glass shop many years ago we had access to many types of glazing rubber depending on the thickness of the glass and the material it fit into. If you have a glass shop near by you might check and see if they have something that might work for you. Best of luck

Thanks Reid, nice tip about the thickness of the glass. So many factors to consider when a person is unfamiliar with the task at hand. Hopefully, it won't be a repeat of the front and back windows, a "real pain in the neck." (but we got it done in the end)
