What is this and how do get a replacement?

Not exactly sure how to describe this. Take a look at the pictures at the molded rubber piece at the end of the frame that extends to the windshield over the doors. I only have the driver's side. I am missing the one over the passenger door.

Any ideas on what this piece is called or better yet, how to get this little rubber cone shaped piece? I suspect it would be helpful in keeping excess water from getting inside.

Thanks

(Sorry the photos are upside down. I have spun them on the computer to correct this without success. )

No chance of getting that piece. It's part of the rollcage which is no longer available. Yours looks damaged, hence the missing piece. You could see if someone could make a mold of the other side and make you a faux copy to glue on.

You could buy a whole take off roll cage...... but that's your only shot, one was for sale here for $7k

Bigger problem is the roll cage is compromised.

Wasn't there a board member who was making the molds for the roll cage? Seems like this would be an easy one for somebody to make since a roll cage doesn't need to be shipped.

If you're serious, that would be outstanding. I know it's a long shot.

Thanks!

That part was removable on the 94s so finding one I guess is possible but it's pretty rare.
