First, I'm grateful to have stumbled upon this site. A little history, my son and I are restoring/ hot rodding our family 72 Ventura. My Father bought the car brand new for my Mom. (still have the window sticker) When I turned 16, the keys were handed to me and the car was my daily ride up until 1997. My son is now 17 and the car will become his. So, to the question at hand. The tail light seal has essentially dry rotted and since they are unique to this model, finding new replacements are difficult. I"m looking for a source for possible replacement. Metro Moulded has rubber weather stripping that could be bought by the foot. Just wondering if anyone has ever gone down this path and if it would work? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
