Default Door Dovetails

Are there any drawings of the original rubber pads that are part of the assembly that the dovetail slips into? The repro rubber that comes with a kit of parts does not fit right. Too large, for one thing. Thanks for any info on this.

Do a search as this "fit" issue has been discussed many times before, sometimes w/pictures of the mods needed. FWIW

Richard, what year and body style are you working on? I pulled prints from the archives when we made several of our sets.
