Rubber radiator mounts

I have had the radiator recored of my 1978 Patrol. I would like to replace the rubber mounting washers that sit either side of the radiator mounting points. Mine are hard and very brittle. Does anyone know of a source for these mounts? They are domed in shape, like a 50's flying saucer, or do they just compress to that shape over years? Any guidance appreciated. Scott.
By th way my Patrol has been sitting 17 years, not 10 as I stated in my initial posting on "Show us your Patrol".

I made my own mounts. I used 1/2 inch thick neoprene from Mc master Carr. I used a bandsaw, then a disc grinder to make the discs. I used short pieces of heavy duty air hose for the compressible center isolators. Make them a little bit long, so they can expand in diameter when tightened.

Thanks for the detailed response. I take it that they are not easily found considering the work that would go into making a set.

Thank you. :clap: I have contacted them. They seem pretty reasonable at $24 for 4. I appreciate the assistance. Scott
