Does anyone have a truck lid lock handle gasket for a 52 Commander? (Page 116, Body Parts Catalog 1951-1952 Series).
Does anyone know where I can purchase the rubber material to make one?
Any ideas will be appriciated.

I've been using (for similar applications) some left over membrane material from a roof (house) patch. Its some sort of rubber, 1/16 thick and wide as your house. Try a roofing contractor for a piece of scrap.

I tried Fennessey a couple years ago, he did not have one. I ended up making my own.
Old bike innertube works great for homemade rubber gaskets.

we used an old intertube from a truck and a good razorknife. you can trace it on the tube or youcan use a brass hammer on the back side to make cut marks. They work just as good as a store bought gasket. Ask me how I know.
