Boot between cab and shell.

It gets dirty and a little hard to see out the back because of the gap between my cab and shell/cap/canopy (depending on where you live) windows.
Anyone know of a boot that will fit around the edges of the windows to keep dirt out of the gap? Only found small ones online.
Not worried about scratching the paint on the back of the cab, it's a 20 year old truck.
I am not going to remove any windows.
Any thoughts??

Tried posting a photo.... couldn't.

For DIY see if a "pool noodle"(they don't absorb water) is wide enough to stay in place and seal the gap, there are different sizes/diameters

If so you can glue a few together and then insert a bendable but stiff wire inside to make the shape you want to go around the window.
Most have a hole down the center, so look at that type of "noodle"

Also look at motorcycle inner tube, 21", it can be inflated to seal the center area, and shaped somewhat, wouldn't do the whole window but would be fine for rear view mirror area if that's what you are after, the air fitting is on the inside so if you don't have a slider window on the cab or canopy then you may need to inflate and then slide canopy in to place, so two people
