    That could be

    That is the problem. I can't seem to find ones that fit. The bumper is1/8 high but the pull through part needs to fit the 3/8 hole. Can't seem to find that size. Most are for 1/4 hole and most are thicker. I have quite a few different ones but none that fit
    If they are thicker, that is not a problem. I always used a razor blade to "adjust" the hood bumpers to get the proper fit.

    Thanks for the part number. I ordered some and we will see what happens. A lot of places say they are not available.
    Just received some. They are smaller than the ones I found (would work) Also I found some in one of my boxes of stuff. Should be good

Restoration Supply ought to have some

    Does anyone know where to get the rubber pullthrough bumpers that go in the little pan just below the trunk lid. There are tons of them on the market but can't find the right size. They snap in a 3/8 hole. Most are 1/4.
    Thanks
