Windscreen rubber for Nippy & 65

June 2016 Update: This is the new rubber that Chris Gould sourced from a tiny section of his original rubber and has now had manufactured.

  1. After extensive searching I have purchased a rubber which appears to replicate the original rubber I removed from my Nippy Screen. It is available from Kit Spares their Black T Seal Ref.TR10008 £13.08 inc VAT & postage for a 1.2M length and delivered next day.

  2. I have just been told about your web site. By coincidence I need a length for myself and two lengths for a couple of friends. I have a piece of genuine rubber on my Nippy which is in Bentley Motor Museum near Lewes. It is perished and split but I was able to get about half a inch from it suitable for copying. Viking Extrusions are making a die to reproduce it and are supplying me with 20 metres of the extrusion. I am waiting to hear when it is ready.
