Hey Mark, Is that the strip at the bottom of the roll out window? The bottom window lip shuts against it. If it is , good luck. You can get the top drip cap stuff at VTS, but I have not seen the bottom seal anywhere. I use the same strip on the bottom as on the top. I just trimmed off the excess. It not as good as the original stuff for sure. But it's my alternate.

Schweet- It is the seal at both the top and bottom. I need to do several windows so probably 15 ft. The bottom and top on this window appear to be the same. The product from vts is the 7/8 " wide? I thought about using it. Mark
don't know if everyone knows about these guys but they can make any molding and might have you pattern in stock since they made moldings for So cal sailboats in the 60's and probably for the trailer builders .

Yeah, that looks like the good stuff Schweet. It has the raise ribs on the contact area. I see this style on the interior top, bottom and sides. (or somehthing very similar on my 71) It creates the complete sealed contact when the window is cranked in and snug. The one window I have rebuilt had decent interior strips except for the bottom. I replaced the top exterior drip strip and bottom only. It's a real pain to clean out the old stuff too. Santa Claus brought me a new Dremel tool for Christmas. I really think that it will come in handy renovating the next one.
