Weather stripping / Misc. rubber crumbling?

A lot of the rubber trim on my car is crumbling and falling off the car. All the rubber around the headlights, between the doors and sideskirts, etc. Is it possible to buy these rubber pieces and replace them? Is there a generic stick on weatherstripping material that can be used to save cost?

You can buy the rubbers. They probably aren't cheap. If you are wanting to hack it with generic stick on weatherstrip, why bother? Just leave it off. Fix the important ones and don't worry about the rest til you have the money.

I tried looking on multiple parts sites for the pieces I need but I can't find the rubber strips that go between the rocker panel and the fenders/quarterpanels. Also, can't find the rubber that goes around the headlights and other misc pieces that I need. The weather stripping around all the glass and doors are perfectly fine though.
