    Not sure what they're called, but would an upholstery shop like Viper have them ?

      I use high density polyethylene (HDPE) or Delrin material and cut them out of blocks of material. I feel certain Scamazon has something.

      Often when I put in stringers I have a little Douglas Fir left over. I use it for the same purpose. Works like a lucky charm.

        toilet seat bumpers will work great, available at your local hardware store. I don't know why one would go to trouble of 3d printing something like this when ready-made substitutes are readily available.

          The ones I have are cracked from the clam shell coming down. Trying to replace with original plastic... but wood painted white may work too.

            If you have a few woodworking skills/tools you can easily fabricate what you need from white HDPE.

                  My two rear bench seats had a lot of movement to them, so I 3D printed a couple of these in polycarbonate, screwed them into the bottom, and it's been perfect ever since. I'd upload a CAD file, but if you have access to a 3D printer setup you could draw up new ones in just a couple of minutes. Really a block of any sort of water-resistant material will work fine.

                    Actually I do have access to a 3d printer. I will give it a shot. Thanks.
