1964 Impala SS Door Panels

I'm ordering new parts for prep of interior project, and I need assistance in identifying a part for my 1964 Impala SS. I removed the door panels which consists of the boards, top metal rails, and a thin piece of metal appearing to be alumninum which is connected to the top piece of the metal rail lengh wise. The ufo piece has a fine (felt like) material attached, also running the lenght and is connected to the rail by some sort of rivet!
Can someone give me the technical name for this piece and can it be ordered as a reprodution piece from Impala Bob's or other resource? Thanks in advance?

I am not sure of the technical name but we call them window felts. They should be easily available.

Is this what you're looking for? Speedydeedy is right, it is readily available. The name you are looking for, if you are looking for window felts, is "belt weatherstripping". Believe it or not, J.C. Whitney has a terrific selection of this stuff in 6 ft. lengths. Unfortunately, their website does not show the different styles available, but their catalog does.

Impala Bob has complete kits CLICK HERE for your car, but the kit is $120. You can save a lot of money by making it yourself.

J.C. Whitney Catalog

DanTwoLakes, Yes, you are correct, Impala Bob's only carrys them in kits! I went to the J.C. Whitney website to order a catalog, but they offer multiple catalogs (jeep, trucks, volkswagons, motorcycles, auto, new products, etc.), is there a specific catalog I need to order to view the weatherstripping? Thanks again....

The catalog I get in the mail says "JC Whitney everything automotive" on the front cover. It has a number in the lower right corner which is 729J-10. I got this catalog about 5 days ago. The stock number on the stuff I just used on a 53 Chevy is YH193478. CLICK HERE You can attach this stuff with aluminum or stainless steel pop rivets. This stuff shapes very easily. One tip.........if you need a curve at the end of a strip, don't try to bend it at the very end. It's much easier to start your curve about 5 inches in and cut it to length when you're done bending.
