Can anyone suggest where to buy the rubber extrusion that is used between the windscreen base and the bonnet / dash panel.

Hi phill I had mine from woolies they were very helpful, I may have a short piece of rubber left over for you to try, not sure if it will fit but not a prob if you want me to send it to you.  I think you bought my back tyres awhile ago?  Cheers Deb

I'd be interested in measurements or profile number if you find one that fits nicely, please.  The ones I bought from Woollies either don't fill the gap properly or stick out over the edge of the flat on my GT bonnet.
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is...

Could either of you take a photo to show me how it is meant to fit?

Kind regards.
