Replacing window weather seals 111 coupe

Hi All,
As part of my restoration work I am replacing the window channel and inner/outer felt weather seals on the front and rear side windows. Has anyone purchased these parts? There are several internet parts houses and of course the dealer but I wish to insure I am buying correct and not "univeral" pieces. Anyones experience with this?
Also the outer rear Quarter windows have the chrome frame and seal that protrudes about 3/8" from the glass and changes position as the window retracts.
How does the relativly rigid outer felt seal maintain the seal when it is compressed so much around the protruding moving window frame? There is not enough of my original seals left to see how it worked.
Any info appriciated.

Just remembered-has anyone replaced the power window regulator rubber mounting bushings?(front door) My parts book dosen't even show them and the dealer had no clue.
