Hi All - The front hood rubber/foam seal has seen better days and I'm looking to replace it....I searched all the usual places and I don't see anything for a 356 replica hood, only original 356's and I don't think those are long enough.  This is a Fiberfab kit if that helps.

Appreciate any help, thanks.

You just need to shop more in Lowes or Home Depot.  Best to used closed cell (so it doesn't act like a sponge) foam weather stripping. Build manual says 1/4" x 3/4".

After "countless hours of extensive testing, modeling and fitment" ... I've found that the McMaster Carr  D molding works best for the bonnet and doors as the hollow D shape fills a larger gap but does compress quite a bit in narrow spacing

And don't you also use the same to seal the windshield header to the windshield frame?
