Lucas 691/2 lens gaskets

OK another search for the unobtainable...
These are apparently some kind of rubber foam and fit between the lens and the base. Anyone know where to find something like this?

As you can see it is just flat ~1/8th foam. I am not sure where I got it (probably tractor supply co), but when I did my series I had a sheet of it and just cut it our from the dry rotted originals. Repos are now available of the lights (thanks to the cobra guys mainly) which is another path if you want shiny and new and NOS are ~$75 each which is not terrible although I might feel bad wheeling a truck with $300 worth of lights on the back.

Yup saw those. Spend-o-meter must slow down! I can get a 42" x 1 foot piece of EPDM foam for 8 bucks at McMaster. Looks like more Zen time cutting little circles out of foam....

the lights have a drain hole. Just make sure the drain hole is at the bottom. You don't NEED the foam...

Well, mine had condensation until I fitted the new foam.

Ya pretty sure the foam was shot back when I first got the truck
