Question Where to buy window seals, molding?

I am re-doing all windows in my 63 Overlander. Where is the best place to buy window restoration supplies? Also, need to buy rubber seal for the entry door. Does Home Depot sell seals and moldings adiquate for trailer restoration? Or do I need to special order? Tks, Z

We just completed the project you are talking about. We were able to purchase everything we needed from VTS and everything worked very well. You will find that the outer glazing strips are a bit of a challenge at first, however you will find your method that works for you and it will become second nature by the third window. One thing we found helpful was our portable steamer. A few of the windows were still stuck nicely to the frames and we broke a couple trying to remove them. We found that if we heated the edges with the steamer that they released pretty well from the frames.

Good luck,
