Drip rail help

I stretched the cab on my 46 chevy pickup.
I would like to install a new drip rail over door and side window.
Has any one purchased new metal drip rail ,if so were?
I would like to eliminate the drip rail all to gather, but the windless and weather seal on the doors is not that good.
Any suggestions on different door gaskets ?
HELP Bobby

I think you're going to have to find a donor vehicle for the drip rail or make your own, look at 4 door sedans, station wagons, full sized vans from the 70's and 80's, there's lots of models with rails if you start looking. Or find another cab like yours and remove the section you need to lengthen your original.

I'm going to shave my "drippers" off for a smoother look. I found generic weatherstrip for doors at the (place company name here) "Zone". I used a light bead of hardened black caulk from the big hardware stores. Put a light bead in the channel and attach. Wipe excess off before it dries, it's kinda hard to get off after it dries.
