    As I replace the parts I am running into some unknowns and hope you can advise me on the PN's, locations and possibly where to purchase the hard to get items.

    1) The gap is between the front fender just behind the marker light and the forward bulkhead. I am sure there was a weatherstrip there but don't know for sure the PN and possible place to purchase?
    2) Unknown weatherstrip 1 obviously mounts on a flange but not sure which one or the part number help?
    3) Unknown weatherstrip 2 all I have is the cross section and length no part number or mounting location
    4) PN 5711810529 have these parts but not sure where or how they mount.

    Any help will be much appreciated as always.

    #4 (discussed just the other day) is for the bulkhead gap. Best explained via the picture

    Do you own a US 73? It isn’t used on any other model and NLA forever.

    My next project is to attach the rear bumper. If I knew the material I could manufacture them.

    Thanks☺

    Since the 73 US bumper was rated at 2 1/2 mph impact by the DOT, it sticks out two inches farther and those spacers are for behind the under riders.

    Do you know what material they were made from Rubber? Are they essential for mounting the rear bumper?

    Pickman, living your confusion!
    I would love W&N to come up with sets of gaskets, firewall to front, left door, right door etc. I have been making a list of gaskets I need and each time I read a post like this, I realize there is another one I need.

    They are made of a very hard and solid rubber I assume. Without them, the under rider will be hanging from the bumper. Many owners just eliminate the under rider, I was lucky my coupe had them.

    This would be a great sticky post to do going through all the seals on a coupe are a little confusing A list of all the seals and where they fit which members could add to.

    I am sure that there would be a lot of discussion on this
