window fix

hello everybody ,
i just took off the aluminium frames of my Catalina 30 and gave them a sand job and with a nice auto spray paint brought them back to life. But now the black rubber fitting inside looks old and dirty. Does somebody know where can i get some new ones(if it sold by the foot) or someway to refurbish it or just plain change it and fill up the space with silicone or other caulking material.
Peace
M

try some wet look product for tires as the moulding is a rubber product, I get it at the local Canadian Tire or Parts store, works real good

You can get butyl rubber sealant tape at most glazing supply shops. You can also get neoprene gasket material.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
