I'm having to replace my pop top seal again. The bulb has stripped away from the channel as if it had been glued. Does anyone make an extruded piece? I replaced it about ten years ago...sadly, the top hasn't seen much popped up action since. My original one was replaced because the channel teeth were rusted...I thought I purchased the Bus Depot kit, but I have no records and I could have purchased them elsewhere thinking that they were all the same... Anyway, I was hoping for recommendations on seals that members have found to last.

Thanks!

I used Werksburgs' (sp?) with the bulb
and it has been fine for 4+ years.

Thanks OB,
Can you tell if the bulb has been glued to the channel? Also, How's the flat seal holding up? It looks like it would seal better than the flat Bus Depot style one.
