Welting Source

I recently committed to a new hardtop project on my vintage jeep. It is actually a right hand 1976 Mitsubishi J54 that was imported from Japan. The vehicle is a collaboration of American and Japanese manufacturing. Pretty much the body is a Willys CJ3b w/RHD and the engine is a Japanese 4DR5 diesel.

I recently found a hardtop (very rare and in need of serious body work) for the jeep. My jeep has the original welting, similar to a model T, around the hood to grille seam. I would like to find a similar welting to meet the hardtop to tub body seam. The welting has a double bead with an area in the middle for rivets. I would like to keep the vintage look and feel like a modern synthetic welting would not be attractive with the hardtop off.

I promise as soon as I learn this trade on these beast, I will be posting more interesting vehicles! I included some pics of the jeep's welting and hardtop. Once again, thank you guys for all the help.
