i started with 1/2"x1" rectangle strait stock. cut a 1/4" off and with the cut off wheel thickness it left 5/8" channel. the started cutting shaping and welding.

the seal as funny as it sounds, i used a MTB 26" tube. cut the stem off and left it whole and stretched it around the window. it fit perfect int he channel. used some black silicon also.
