Window channel felt

Does anyone know a less expensive technique or product that can be used to replace window channel and felt on the windows of a W108. I am not so concerned about OEM replacement for this item when it costs about $600. Thank you

The part I bought from Restoration Specialties was 8-A-2 on page 8 of their catalog in the 96" length. It was $31 for 8' and one length did one door. They say oversize shipping applies to the 96" length but in reality, they rolled it up and there was no up charge. This beats the $50 - $60 per meter that everyone else seems to want although there are a couple of sites that will sell a 20 meter roll for about $300.00 but that is enough for two cars.
How did you install them in the front, are you able to slide them in from the top, or need to remove the glass?
i had the glass out when I did it but not sure that it is required. I need to replace the front windows again and just purchased a new piece for the driver front door. Funny, but the aftermarket channel in the rear doors is still fine but the front has totally failed
How do you remove the window? I purchased the same item u mentioned above, just waiting for it to arrive.
