Has anyone replaced the rubber part of their side marker lights? I Know that the original p/n's are 54581276 and 54581389 and that other cars (Lotus, Spitfire and Midget) at times used 54581943 - 922, 54583858 - 859 and that Moss offered 54579896 (Midget) as p/n 282-260 but it appears that everyone I contact no longer supplies it. I am ready to weld up the holes and start over. If anyone knows where to buy the rubber parts I would appreciate knowing as I have all of the other parts. Thanks - Cort

Cort,

There was some discussion a while back about getting some of these made. The Jensen Healey version of the rubber bit is slightly different from the other cars to meet up with the curvature of the car's body.

Last time I talked to Jim he was either low on them or completely out. As it happens, I was just looking at this same part for Mum's Spitfire. The shape of the Spitfire rubber bits are close enough to the JH ones that only someone who really knows what they're looking at can tell. It appears that SpitBits has them (My favorite source for Spitfire bits) http://spitbits.com/1500/1500dashboard.htm They sell them as a set of 4 fr 80 dollars. Yep, price is a little steep, but you are paying for unobtainium.

Final option is to contact Martin Robey in the UK. You'll have to call them because their catalog works by Jensen Part # and the parts catalog doesn't have a P/N for the rubber bit. I did see that they were listing complete assemblies for ~50 Pounds. I think I spent a comparable amount for the last NOS JH one I purchased.

Just bought four of them from Delta for about $22 each. They had them in stock. They are a flat profile instead of the tapered original style. Fit and look fine.
