Help locating Barn Door bumper/rubber spacer

I am having difficulty figuring out what these are called and where to find them. There are a total of four, two for each barn door. One above and one below, probably to keep them from rattling.

Re: Help locating Barn Door bumper/rubber spacer

I did some searching on the web with vendors Ive dealt with and didn't see any either. But that being said Im not the best at doing searches.

I looked in the board vendor list here:https://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/showgroups.php

These are vendors that may have what you are looking for. A lot of the vendors on the list sell more specific items like suspension mods and such.

Try shooting these folks an email, even if they dont have maybe they can send you in the right direction.

Maybe your interested in OEM pieces to bolt on, I would think you could cut these out of 1 inch rubber block and drill mounting holes.....4 x 4 x 1 inch rubber block about $11..

Re: Help locating Barn Door bumper/rubber spacer

Thanks for the reply’s. I’ve looked at a few of the listed resources sites but I’ll have to fire off a few emails. I might try to just clean them up and see how they do. They are rubbing the paint so I wanted to try and start from fresh. All the rest of my rubber is new aside from a few bits like these.

Re: Help locating Barn Door bumper/rubber spacer

Soaking rubber bits in water and a high concentration of Dawn dish soap does wonders for refreshing the rubber. Unless the rubber is rock hard. It did a good job on my fixed window seals.

Re: Help locating Barn Door bumper/rubber spacer

If you have access to one I've had good luck running rubber snubbers, seals or bumpers or cushions, what ever one wants to call them, thru my glass bead cabinet. I normally blast cast iron and steel parts at about 80 psi. When I do small rubber parts I turn the pressure regulator down to about 40 psi. They come out looking almost like new.

The Dawn dish soap and water soak seems like a good try also. Maybe after the bead blast to open the rubber pores.
