Weather strip for Fibreglass Hardtop

Anyone have any leads on a good replacement for the front weather strip for the fibreglass hardtop?

All Rovers North could advise is that Item has been discontinued.

TIA

Isn't the weatherstrip just a flat piece of black rubber/foam rubber? Any decent auto parts store should have a generic replacement.

Ok, I located Pickup camper tape. Its about 3/16 of an inch thick, and 1 1/4 wide. It has one sided adhesive then a foam sealant. I'll give this a shot.

Don't forget to use clear silicone sealant on the various gaps and holes ( for example, outside on top of the fiberlass top where the mounting bolts hold it to the bulkhead/windshield frame). The factory manual actually suggests this procedure. Makes a huge difference in weather-proofability.
