Splash shield Rubber and clips

Does anyone know the exact type of rubber used on the splash shields that I could buy in sheet form? And also does anybody know where I can get these clips picture below in bulk like An AUVECO part number? Thanks

Can't see the pic at work( very tall firewall). Are you looking for the A body upper control arm splash shields? If yes they are readily available cheap with the staples/fasteners. Most any GM A body resto part supplier carries them. The Vette suppliers carry both types of fasteners, push in plastic and SS staples, so should the A body suppliers.

Ahh, I see the pics now that Im home...you want the radiator to core support seals and fasteners for a 65. Not sure on the material or fastener specs for a 64-65s. I assume you've called Fusick, Year One, OPGI etc...???

Did you look at other GMs of the era...Buick Pontiac Chevelle? Most everything for a GTO/Chevelle/Camaro/Vette is reproduced.

You might find a seal which is larger say for an 88/98, Cadi, Eldo, Duce in a Quarter etc... and cut it down...

As mentioned in my previous post it could be used on Vettes, (the fasteners that is ). Corvette Central, Ecklers, Mid-America are just a few suppliers I use.
I do know the A-arm dust shields in an early C3(68 or 9) is the thinner material similar to the Olds core seals. You could order a set and cut straight strips from them...I do remember thinking to myself when I installed a set in my 68 C3 that the material reminded me of the core seal in my 68 442...just brainstorming.

Steele sells the masticated rubber in sheets, or they did a few years ago when I bought some.
