I can't find a source for the small rubber bumpers that I see on some Things. Looks like two on front and back.
Thanks,
Pete

Jerry Watson (of "People who Drive a VW Thing" on Facebook) might still have these.

Good luck, Mondshine

These giant rubbers were installed by dealers on Things sold in California.
My car came from Endres Motors, Lancaster, CA.
