Flexible J Channel for Round Windows


I'm going to be installing a round window in my home which has vinyl siding. Can anyone point me to a source for flexible J channel that will wrap around the window so I can use to re-install the siding? Thanks!

Do you already have the window? If not it would be best to just order one with the J moulding built in.
Trying to get flex moulding to form a circle will be a real challange.

I was able to get a rubbery J channel the one time I needed it. Cost a lot and only came in white at that time, about 12 years ago

I was able to source something I hope will work:
http://www.specialserviceplastic.com/flex_j.htm

Ordered it today and will have by end of week. Since I'm not close to any siding suppliers ordering online worked out well. I already have window and will be installing it this weekend, will post to let everyone know if product works as described.

Thanks.
