    Did you try OPGI under the general '68 Cadillac category without choosing a model. I've found tons of stuff there so ya never know.

    Take one to your local napa or other auto store. They should have several catalogs with rubber pieces and try to match it up. I had to do that for a few odds and ends. A lot of the rubber will be listed generically and not by make or model.

    Thanks for the tipp, but I am located in Germany.
    So no chance to go just round the corner to a auto store.

    Wish all of you a happy new year!

    Had no luck at Steele Rubber but they have been very supportive and sent me to Metro Moulded Parts, but again no luck.
    Both of them have this part not in their portfolio (checked this with the sales guys in both companies).

    Anybody else an idea where I can purchase this?

    Thanks

    Lars

    It seems to be a simple square piece of rubber that is out of view anyway. Is there no way you could mold something out of a rubber mat or windows gasket? You could use gasket rubber or silicone that is sold on a roll that you could fold? Or make a mold in clay or something from the originals and create it from black silicone (maybe use some rubber inside to reinforce it as a base)?

    Hi guys,

    thanks for your support - but a DIY solution is not what I am locking for.
    Will call "Rubber the right way" and keep you updated.

    Search is still going on.
