Big Black Port Gaskets

I recently ordered two 50' rolls of the 1" (hull) to 1/4"(lexan) black rubber gaskets and locking strip used on the early 70's Morgan OI and some other Morgan portlights. My old portlight gaskets are so ozone damaged and ugly; with black steaking from the old rubber. I can't wait to receive the new gaskets and try the refit! Of course, I don't really need 100', but slightly more than 60'. I should have almost 40' of the material left over. Someone might be interested,- I'll post my results. Who else has refit OI portlights? Have you replaced the original rubber extrusion like my plan? ,-or something new and different? 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
