    Save for the discoloration, the seal strips are still quite pliable and intact. I'm just going to have to figure out a solution for the side squar-ish bits on either side. I'm thinking some kind of 1 mil flexible silicone will fit the bill.

    Is there any chance somebody has one for sale in great shape - with all the seals intact? Color isn't important.

    Here is a picture of mine. I'm thinking of just fabricating some kind of thin plastic solution for the ends and just cross my fingers and hope for the best on the two main seals. Jesus that's ridiculous pricing for a new unit.



    Just put a clear silicone seal over the rubber and wipe off any excess.
