Simon Kelly has a rubber factory in the Far East which is making these for
him to sell (and use on his own cars) http://www.ebay.co.uk/ Item number:

He doesn't do the later ones.  His other rubber items are reckoned to be
good quality, and if there are problems I'm happy to "bend his ear" about

Any  suggestions for a vendor that sells GOOD quality and "fit"
(repro?)  Taillight Rubber Seals for my '69 Squareback?

There really isn't a good repop out there that lasts for more than a year
(6 months is typical for my area). I've also been making this complaint to
anyone that would listen (like ISP) for years, but it just keeps falling on
deaf  ears. :O I guess at 10 bucks a pair, it's hard to justify making
something that  would last. It doesn't matter who you buy them from either,
as they're all using  the same type of rubber to make them (Anthony @ISP
told me this part). My  recommendation, would be to try and make your OE
ones last as long as you  possibly can.
