Windshield glazing vinyl for 94 PS 190

Has anyone succeeded in finding new glazing vinyl for a 94 ProStar 190 windshield or similar? It sits between the tempered glass and the aluminum windshield frame.

Lex at Rambo says he doesn't have it. Taylor is still working on it for me, but based on what I've seen through e-mail with them, I don't think the samples they are sending me will work. It's looking grim. I'm not ruling out that the Taylor person I'm working with has overlooked something, though.

I have two profiles on my boat. The shorter one sits in a channel 0.65 inches wide by 0.54 inches deep. The taller one sits in a channel 0.43 inches wide by 0.75 inches deep. My glass measures 0.23 inches thick, so I take it to be nominally 1/4 inch thick glass.

In reading and searching this forum since joining in 2013, I haven't seen anyone claim to have found it. I talked to an active forum member who joined in 2004 who hasn't seen it sourced. Anyone succeeded in recent years?

This is what my current (original, I believe) glazing assembly vinyls look like in cross section. I don't see where the little fin-like projections have to register in the channel at particular heights, so it seems to me the number of them is less important than the vinyl accommodating the channel dimensions and glass thickness I gave above.

Taco marine generally has a good selection. You need to know what you want, when calling.

I'll try those sources too. I have to wonder, though, if someone found a source for these vinyls, why I can't find a thread where they posted the source and item number(s) specifically identifying the vinyl they purchased.

Have you tried American Marine, which Mike linked to above and which is referenced on the Aluminum 2000 website? The American Marine page to which Mike linked seems to say they have more than what they picture on that page.

Anybody tried Pacific Coast Marine Windshields for glazing assembly vinyl for their Taylor-built Mastercraft windshield?
