Depending on where the little buggers chewed, you can replace the forward section of the gasket with a common "top bulb" edge trim from your local hardware store.
e.g.

You'll need to cut the factory gasket at the point where the two types are welded together and install the new top-bulb in-place of the old one which has often rusted.

If the mice have chewed the rearward part of the gasket (closest to the windscreen), then this product won't be a direct replacement.
I don't know where to source that style from sorry.
