Default Need Replacement Outrigger Pads, etc.

We have a 1907T, and I want to replace the black rubber pads on my 4 outriggers that hold the weight of the top when it's down. But I also want to replace the multiple, gray rubber pad strips that are mounted under edge of the top, which also carry some the top's weight when it's down. Some are missing, but all are too compressed and need replacement. Any source ideas...?

I have a 2206 towlite that needed the same thing
I used 1/2 thick rubber reinforced semi truck mud flap I got from grainger.com
They where a little tough to cut , to cut 2”x2” for the lower outriggers and 1/2”x3” upper pieces it was easiest to go to a sheet metal shop and have them use there metal cutting shear since I work in shop that has one I used it
They had held up for 6 years so far with no wear

Thanks for that great suggestion. I just went on Grainger.com and found HD truck flaps in 3/8" and 1/2" thickness. They're $36-64 each. Then I realized that I regularly see truck flaps on the road, which are free for the collecting! Ha! Is the "metal shear" a hand tool like scissors, or something larger? We have no metal shop in my small town.

The metal shear looks like a big paper cutter
Designed to cut 30gauge to 16gauge sheetmetal
Any sheetmetal, heating,air conditioning business/shop will have one
Or cut them with a hacksaw (the small thin blade works well)
