  1. Those rubber strips are impossible to find in decent shape and no one is reproducing them - I looked for over a year . I finally went my lock parts store and found something that looked reasonable and completely covered the holes in the bumper . I can send you info on that if you are interested or will be able to send some to you . Think I spent about $35 or $40 on mine . You do have to trim the ends to your specs which I did with my Dremel . Enclosing a couple of pics . KReed ROA 14549
  2. Was pleasantly surprised on Friday when John Sherman , general manager at Danile Schmitt Co. called me and told me that the previous owner had forgot to give him the original window sticker when they bought gather car in June . He sent it to me and I thought folks might be interested in seeing it . Wa glad to see it was a California car for part of its life - last owner was a Michigander but so far have not found any rust . The car was originally a vinyl /cloth seat but now has leather . It has so far not disappointed- few little details to correct - nothing major . KReed ROA 14549
