The existing metal/felt window channel (I believe it to be original) only runs to the top of the window on my 38 truck. At the radius of the window and across the top, the channel appears to become solid felt. I need to replace the channel but all I see for replacement material is the flexible steel/fuzzy channel. Should I just us that material in a continuous run up the back,over the top, and down the front?

I used one continues piece on my 37 that I just installed. Worked great , just had to do a little forming on the corners. Ordered it from Chevs of the 40's

I also used the one piece " fuzzy channel " up, over, and down. Let it extend into the door a bit as well. As I recall, there are tabs inside the door to hold it.
