Rubber components, 1942 DeSoto

Recommended Posts

I think vendors such as Andy Bernbaum have most of the rubber parts I need for this car, however one special piece for this year only is the rubber boot that covers part of the headlight mechanism under the hood. Mine is disintegrating and will need to be replaced. Any suggestions where I could find one of these?

Here's the basic dash pieces taken apartpost-89110-14314179123_thumb.jpg The plastic piece with the speedo numbers that goes between is completely yellowed throughout. Polishing won't help as it's not just the surface. mine was so yellow, you could not read the odometer numbers. I'm thinking of having a new one made and may do several through a laser etch process. Would anybody else be interested in this?
