Retitled 1/21/19 to hopefully get more eyes on it.
I found a product that fits and seals great. It is not a match in looks to the OEM seal, but it actually seals (probably tighter) quite firmly to the glass and the roof. Because of the bulb type seal on the body side, it does sit up a little above the roof if left alone. That bulb part can be easily massaged down by hand to look better if it bothers you when sunroof is closed, and I bet will hold that memory after a while. I will include a couple pictures of an installed piece fitted to the corner of the glass tomorrow. I don't have any idea if this will work with aftermarket sunroofs, as I have never seen one in person. I need 15 seals ordered to secure the minimum order of material. Depending on the count of who's in, I may or may not ask for a deposit or prepayment. For this GP, each seal is $40 plus shipping via USPS Medium Flat Rate.

Update 1/22/19:
See latest installed pictures of new seal. I'm really pleased overall with the look and fitment. The bulb part that seals to the body came out slightly larger (maybe 3/32") than the sample piece. Maybe that sample is old and has shrunk over time. Multiply that by 2 for left-right & front-back and it does bulge up some due to the overall finished outside size being a bit larger than perfect and the material being a little tacky. I massaged it down dry, so a little soap or lube would certainly make it easier. I'm hoping to fit these into a Small USPS Flat Rate Box, as they are only about 7' long.

Once I have 10 seals fully paid, they will start shipping in order of payment. PM me for my paypal and your shipping information. I think this is a smoking deal, had I been on your side. I'm sure you could flip these and double the cost if not more, but that's not any of my my business or concern. I just wanted a solid product that was affordable to all to help the community out. If you would please include a couple coins for PP fees or send as a friend that would be appreciated.

Tell your friends on FB to come here to get in at $40 plus shipping via USPS Medium Flat Rate Price. Price will increase after the first 15 are out.

I'm providing an extra inch or two in length for final fitment by you in case my cuts aren't square or whatever. They can stretch slightly if you really try, or if you cut it a little short.

I'm back with a nice little update.

I was able to select a different product which looks better and performs the same if not better as well. I'll put those pics up tomorrow morning. I'm confident these will be a hit for whoever buys and installs one to replace your damaged or missing outer seal.

I may even add a felt/velvet type tape to the seal portion of the bulb, similar to OEM which is there I assume to help glide the seal into the cavity smoother than raw EPDM or rubber would. I may even offer that as an added service and cost if I'm pleased with the results.

I'm still good at the $40 plus shipping for the first 15 to pay. After that, non GP pricing will be higher. Get in at $40 while you can. I have purchased the material because of my confidence in this product in fit & finish, and because I want mine NOW. It should be here any day, so if you want to send me a pm for payment info, or wait for tomorrows pics please do so.

Material is arriving Monday. Expect pics Tuesday of the finished product installed on mine. After that, I will see if adding the velvet tape enhances the performance and let you know if that will be an added option. If the 5 guys in thus far are still in, there are 10 more spots at the GP price.

Does this have the steel 'skeleton' grippers  moulded into the rubber like the original? Your new find looks great to me.

Yes, all these types of seals have a steel or aluminum skeletons to act as a spine, and most have at least one built in barb or gripper as you called it inside the length of the channel to grab and hold to the edge of whatever you are applying it to. This particular one has 3 barbs on one side and a single one on the other side. Those barbs act as grippers and a seal. I’m stoked to have found such a nice fit and finish for this, and am somewhat surprised of low numbers of interest here thus far. I’m sure when I put it on FB I will get a lot more action, but holding off for now.
