Rubber bump on weld edge above the firewall
« on: March 03, 2024, 16:10:09 »
Could someone tell me the part number for this rubber piece is. I cannot seem to find any in the parts book either.
Stop bump for the bonnet which sits above the firewall edge. I am assuming I require 3 of these.

Thanks

Though it definitely isn't per hoyle, I used a piece of a used valve cover gasket from my car cut to size
 and looks as it should (and no one has ever questioned them)
