Restoring the Screens in my '71 Caravel

I'm wondering if anyone has had luck locating the brush like material that is fitted to the back side of the screen frame that acts as a barrier to insects and weather? Its that fuzzy stuff the lever control arms, used to manipulate the windows open and closed, slide along.

We bought new at either Out of Doors Mart or Vintage Trailer - I forget which one. We tried buying the ones that come all together, and you just pop in but they didn't fit in our '72 sovereign. You hot glue the fuzzy stuff in - goes pretty easily.
