Hi, newbie here
Just started a new restoration and need some parts that appear to be no longer available, these are the seals on the front suspension uprights, part number 138559 in a couple of catalogues.

It seems that they won't be available in the future, so what do people do? , what can I do instead of a seal ?
I've​ bought this car dismantled so it's not like I've thrown them away by mistake or anything.

I dare say I'll be doing this quite a lot in the future  
Thanks in advance
Hal

Part no. 138559 is listed as "water shield" on Canley's site, and without a corresponding number on the picture.

The conclusion when they were discussed on here a couple of years back was they're not needed.


Current fleet
1967 Vitesse 2L conv "Tessa"
1970 Spitfire Mk3 (project) "Toby"
1972 GT6 Mk3
Not enough time or space
Recently sold:
1972 2.5 PI estate "Harry" (gone to russell on here)
1973 Toledo 2-door "Spike" (gone to a club official)
Used to have:
1968 Vitesse 2L saloon
1980 Dolomite 1500
1977 Dolomite 1850
1980 Dolomite Sprint
1982 TR7 DHC Sprint
1975 2500S saloon
1971 Herald 13/60 Estate (with 1500 Spit engine)
1975 Stag

I didn't get one on my resto, however on the upright was a thin piece of metal cup which i think is the water shield.

Driving a Herald in rain is not recommended as they dissolve into rust
