Default Roll up windows from scratch

Hi everyone,
I'm looking for some input on how to make windows work on my fiberglass body shell. I want windows that roll down rather than fixed race car windows. I've got an Aston Martin DB5, which had door frames. I'm going to make mine like the DB4, which was a hard top and didn't have door frames. I'm going to make the quarter glass fixed, non-rolling or venting. I planned on putting a fuzzy channel on the front of the quarter window to help guide the door window, but I don't know if that'll work.

I'm going to order a street rod electric regulator setup that takes care of holding the glass and moving it up and down

But I need to come up with all the weatherstripping, channel, whisper strip, etc. I'm not exactly sure what all these components are really called so that's making my search rather difficult.
