Maybe you will get lucky and one of the seals from The Skylight guy will match the old seal.

Campervan Culture's seal looks like a regular bulb type seal just like the pop top seal. I have some of this - new and will be the basis of my installation. We shall see.

Good news. Curtquarquesso and I have teamed up. He graciously sent me the whole Skylight system to work over for fabrication.

Ill get on this as time allows. I hope to meet up with my fabricator on the metal bits this week.
