Default 403 Boot Lid seal

Does anyone have a source for the rubber extrusion used for the seal on the boot lid of a 403? I'm guessing the 401 seal would be the same as well. I have managed to find supplies of all the other rubber extrusions for the 403, but this one has beaten me. I still have what came off the car - it's sort of P shaped, but solid, and it's kind of tapered rather than a real P shape. One side is flat, the other has the taper. I've already trawled the COH Baines and Phoenix Trim catalogues with no success. Overall height is 3/4". The thickest part is about 2/3 the way up and is about 1/4" thick. I don't want to cut the old one to photograph the cross-section, in case I have to put it back in!

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Have you checked with Bill Lawson as he has a range of rubber for the older cars?

Yes - thanks for asking, but Bill has been my source of some of the other rubber seals and he was not able to help with the boot seal.
