Seat Box Sealing

I'm having a hard time finding the right thing to use to seal between the seat box and the door frame and the back of the seat box and the floor/foot well for rear passengers.

I wanted to use some kind of rubber "tape" or flat weather stripping that I could stick on one side or the other; something that will get a little compression when it is bolted together. But I can't seem to find anything suitable.

Frost King E/O 3/8 in. x 7/16 in. x 10 ft. Black High-Density Rubber Foam Weatherstrip Tape R738A at The Home Depot - Mobile

I use this in between the windshield and the soft top bar, works great and is cheap. Comes in tons of sizes

Thanks for the heads up on the Frost King, that's what I had in mind. But for some reason, neither Lowes or Home Depot had this stuff. They had a shaped rubber strip that is too narrow. NAPA, and one other parts store only had D shape molding, or the caulking. For one reason or another, I just don't want to use caulk.

I ended up finding the Frost King at 7:00 this morning while out gathering doughnuts for the family at the local one-stop food/home mart.

Personally, I prefer the closed cell foam weatherstripping as shown earlier. It only sticks to one item, makes removal easier and fills gaps well. There should be a large variety of sizes available at any hardware store.
