Default M38 Jeep door glass seals

Looking for some replacement rubber seals for my M38 jeep arctic top. It's the seal that the door glass sits into, and is like a u-channel with two 'lugs' on the top. Some photos and a sketch of the seal; note dimensions are in millimetres.

Does anybody know of a source for a suitable replacement seal?

Thanks,
Owen.

Try looking at https://www.steelerubber.com/dense-extrusions They are US based so have dimensions in inches (to match what your Jeep was built in) so you will need to do unit conversions to see wheter any of their sections match.

Those dimensions have been converted from imperial Grant.
6.35= 1/4. 11.11 = 7/16" etc.

Thanks Grant. Will give them a try, and post how I get on....

Hi Owen; I spent some time looking for this material several months ago for my M37. On the M37 it is used on the sliding rear window. I need to find my sample piece to verify the dimensions (below are photos from November), but I think it is similar to what you have posted.

Ill be interested to see what you find, as I still have a need.

Hi Wayne. Interesting that the M37 Arctic Cab uses a very similar glass seal to the M38 Arctic Top. Wonder if they were both contract built by the same vendor? The data plate (attached) doesn't give any clues as to the original manufacturer.

The "G-249" parts list is split over many volumes; I think volume 40 was for the M38A1. I have yet to see the volumes covering either the M37 or M38 though....

Owen.
