rubber seal for windshield

in an old issue of European Car, a 914 that was the subject of an article has a rubber seal around the winshield instead of the aluminum trim. anybody know about this, or what seal would be used? the owner's name is mentioned but i don't want to post it. maybe the owner is a forum member or somebody knows him.any info?

I've heard of everything from a CRX seal, to a Ford Windstar seal, to a generic one from a FLAPS. Evidently those can all be made to fit, with varying amounts of success.

I had a generic seal installed on my 1971 which was black rubber with a chrome mini stripe in the middle. I think the guy charged me $75 installed. Triumph Auto Glass in Albany, NY. YMMV.

The YMMV was for the cost. Wind was whistling through and the glass about popped out before I took it to the shop.

Rain, Snow, everything. No problems. This guy did a good decent job.
