Where to get window and door rubbers?

Looking to replace all window and door rubber on my defender. What's the best source to get these items?

Thanks.

Doesn't really matter to me as long as aftermarket fit properly.

I fitted brit part front door seals about a year ago, seem to be holding up so far with the heat here in Texas. If that helps.

There are (apparently) several different styles for the bottom seal. I bought new & they are completely different to what's on there.

Of course, I already tore one of the old ones off before I realized this. D'oh!

The bottom door seal may trap moisture and encourage rust, especially in the front doors. Something to consider...

From what Ive been told, updated door bottom seals do not fit on NAS doors and genuine is the way to go for a proper fit. Rovers North or Rimmer UK for genuine items.

Sorry, I misunderstood what you were looking for. My suggestion id for window channels, not the rubber door seals, which i believe you are looking for....

I have had both aftermarket and genuine door seals, the genuine were much better in my experience.
