Rubber Dust Caps

Greetings all,
Does anyone know where I can purchase a couple rubber dust caps? Years ago, Kamakazzy Ken put them out for sale then I heard Cigarman had the die and he was a dead end. I have them on one of my Amphicars and after countless dunks, the Amsoil grease looks like the day I pumped it in.
I wonder who possesses the die and why they aren't available.
Many thanks!

AS with many parts that I make,,, The numbers are too small to have mass produced.. (I may sell 10- 20)
So I make them my self in my shop. A good example is the bearing buddies for front wheels to take the place of the rubber dust caps.
When you add up the time it takes to make(or machine) each part and add the original price to purchase the part I can not make them at a reasonable price,Most are made just for cars I work on in my own shop. I would need to get $120 for a pair of Buddies.

Brian & Gord - I purchased a repro-pair from Peter in Hamburg - his ID is strandweiss62 - see the attached screenshot of the info -

i think the original thread about them was lost in the data crash Mike Israel had last year - maybe Peter will see this and can chime if he still have them.
Apparently he also successfully made a gadget to replicate the heat-molded "stitch" pattern for door & side panels...altho as Gord will attest - shipping is always an extra if you arent exactly near the seller. Gords interiors are great too if you like the stitchless look he offers. Different strokes!

All interiors with white tops have a heat stitch in them. Grey interiors have to be sewn.IMG_4442.JPG
