Okay I'm stuck rationalizing the following part numbers. They are distinctly different in the diagrams, but I need to tie them to a pic and put them in the proper category. Chris I'll take a look at your original sheet once again. Scott - I was confused by 529. Looks like the small cowl corner seals but the diagram shows a long hood seal. Easy to solve I'm sure, but I'm having a hard time visualizing. I think 175 is the gasket that I mentioned in front and rear of the car, goes between the fenders, similar or same to 180 (which I duplicated).

Also scott, you had an overrider cover that I didn't recognize the profile on. In your gallery.

Markos - xx529 is the little piece that goes in the corners of the engine compartment (near the windshield) - between the gutter and the top of the inner fender, pushed into place.

there are 2 different 175 parts.
41145703175 is #17 on 41/15
51376740175 is the rear window rubber trim between the frame + the metal trim at the headliner

i don't have an overrider cover in my gallery. i don't have the xx817098 pics in my photos either
i have to look for more rubber pieces in my boxes. i know i have more.

Front turn signals actually have two seals; one between body and chrome base (which I think you already have pic of), but there also is a rubber gasket that seals the lens to the chrome base. In the attached pics (From ebay, it's for sale for a dump ass price of @ 600 usd...) you see the body rubber as a separate part, and the rubber between chrome and lens is still in place inside the chrome base.

Thanks @eriknetherlands! I need to clean this up a bit. I’ll add the inner seals. Also the screws on the blinkers have little rubber donuts. So do the t-bolt nuts for the belt-line, but maybe I’m splitting hairs at this point. :D

Following up on eriknetherlands point, are there part #'s for those inner turn signal seals? Realoem.com doesn't seem to list them as a separate item which is strange

What an awesome resource this is, thank you so much guys! I am doing most of the rubber on a 1975 this winter, saving me hours and hours of research. It is very helpful to have the real photos of where the part is, avoids the confusion. The old parts program sketches are tough to decipher at times. Thanks!!!

I have two to add, at the base of the rear quarter glass there is a channel seal and fits into the body/door opening area 51 36 7 740 107 L 51 36 7 740 108 R will provide a photo shortly
Markos will need to add this one to post #7 by adding those two lines as I’m not sure I have the skills to do it. It is another one of the NLA rubber bits.

Updated, but these part numbers are for a 2000CS at W&N. Realoem and e9coupe discussions confirm compatibility.

This FAQ is a bear! No wonder why I haven't touched it in 6 months! Many thanks to @HB Chris for his stewardship! I still need to revisit a few audits from above to see if they need updating.

My first order is in from W-N, I can send pictures of the seals missing them or add them here if wanted. I am trying to get every bit of rubber for the car I am working on.

Thank you for participating. That would be helpful. I think it is difficult to recognize how incredibly helpful this inventory is unless you are going through the painstaking process of spending $2K on rubber. :D

Guys - I don't have any parts number knowledge to add, but I have one tidbit to pass along folks may want to consider. If folks have rubber parts, particularly appearance items, that are dried but not cracked, try a liberal application of petroleum jelly. I have had good luck bringing back to life some dried rubber gaskets and seals that are not too far gone.
