Still looking for the splash kit that's close to original and several places like Heartbeat City,The Parts Place,Trim parts, Metro claim to be just like the originals but don't want to buy ALL of them just to compare! Anybody tried some from these retailers ?

Just ordered some will post results.
40" wide x Linear  foot @ $13.75 per FT.

I have a torn Orig I bonded (Glued-Goofy) repair back in 86. The replacements seem to smooth and lack the texture and cotton strands.

James I sincerely appreciate you sharing the source.

I just measured it on a EJ Cady dial caliper with industry spec anvils (some specific sq inches) and I came up with .075.
This is the masticated rubber with the string cords in it.
I will post photos this week.

Just measured my original 67 dust shield material 4 pc and they check out at .082/.090. The 5th lower rear LH shield only measures .115/.120.
Wire staples for the 4 pc dust shields measure .050 and the ones for the lower rear are .055.
I checked the shields I have from Soft Seal and they are all .070.
The search continues.

I was also disappointed with the set from soft seal! Inner tube cut outs was my first impression......
