Hi John,

What did the rubber shop in Ohio have to say about the rubber sidelight bases?

Just another caution:  I was encouraged by one of the big Jensen shops in the US to pursue this part.  When I got serious about it, I contacted MANY parts suppliers ( Jensen and other British cars) about interest in such a part and only one had even a mild interest.  That's why I gave up on it.  You have to sell hundreds at a high price to come close to break-even.

Fact is, there are at least two configurations for this part - one flat, and the other tapered.  So, that means two molds - twice the investment.

Let me know if I can be of any help,
