Slider Window Build

I'm working on a pair of upper door sliding windows and I was wondering if anybody knew where to find the "double bulb weatherstripping" all of the top sites say they use on their windows.
Here's a pic of the frame and the base of the window in place.



As you can tell i've got a lot more work to do, but I need the stripping so I can have a good seal. Any help would be appreciated! I'll be posting more pics as soon as I get to work on it some more.

The frames are made of 1/4 square stock and i believe that the rod that slides into the lower door is 3/8 round stock. The flat metal is some thin stuff I used off of an old AC unit. I coated it in vinyl and just finished up today. Well, my grandpa did pretty much everything. He's a genius with the stuff. Here's a picture
