Does anyone know where to source the seal/rubber that goes between the body and the hinge protector? My 61 has the original swr protectors and I would like to install them. I read a thread that bustoration had them but it was quite old and the site doesn't seem to recognize my search

Sometimes I can't locate what I need through searching also. Just call them and ask as they most likely have it. It's nice to talk to a human too, Ronnie often picks up the phone at Bustoration and he knows my project. Wink

I'm curious as to what that seal looks like too.

Thanks hazetguy, I must have been typing and of course spell checking while you were posting. We are in sync, very cool image and wow only $5.00 bargain as it's most likely German.

Agreed, 5 bucks is great for such an obscure piece imo.
