Good source for weatherstripping

I was wondering if anyone can offer a good site for buying weatherstripping and seals for my 65 thunderbird.
I know theres a ton of T-Bird sites out there, but some of the pricing is a little bit high for a "specialty" weatherstrip.
In other words, I feel that its very likely allot of the weather stripping shapes and sizes can be found elsewhere, without having to pay thru the nose.
thanks

If generic weather stripping would work for you, J.C. Whitney has a good selection of shapes and sizes at a fairly decent price.

Be sure it's the kind with a "skinned" surface. I bought a trunk weatherstrip from them years ago, and it was made like rebond carpet pad. Stuff soaked up water like a sponge.

Metro rubber has repro parts but not as many as Steele.
