Older storm door replacement parts

When i bought my house 8 years ago, it already had a Sears Best Storm Door in place (Model #948.65193270). The door and the glass and screens inserts are all still fine. My problem is the plastic inserts that hold the glass and screen panels in place. They have become brittle and are breaking.

I contacted the Sears Storm Door Replacement parts center and they said they no longer carry these parts because the door was from the early 90s. My question: is there a current version of a Sears Storm Door that has strips like this that I could use for my door?

In the pics below, they are a bit hard to see, but they are the cream-color strips...you can see they are breaking apart...

Unfortunately I cannot tell from your attached pictures if the interior plastic trim that has aged serves simply a stabilizing function or as weatherproofing as well.

There are a number of inexpensive generic products that you could try. I linked a few of my findings below and hope you find them helpful. Checking with a local window/door/blind store might be the quickest route to find a product that could work with your Sears brand door.
