Inner Door Panel Foam Donuts

Darn it!
I have been pretty good about bagging and tagging...Oh well.
On my 72 C10,
I can't find the four foam donuts for the inside door actuators and window cranks.

What have you guys done?
Make some up or a WTB thread?
Suggestions appreciated.

Stock photo for reference:

Thanks

I haven't had to make any of them and I don't know if the 1/2" foam water pipe insulation is big enough around or not, but maybe a guy could use a couple of different sizes to end up with the correct overall size....

Re: Inner Door Panel Foam Donuts

I guess I will have to innovate.
Some round diameter foam and my hole punches should work.
Can't find replacements on any vendors web sites.
I assume the factory installed them for anti-rattle purposes? Not sure.

Thanks again Leon.

Re: Inner Door Panel Foam Donuts

LMC used to carry them for the squarebodies...might be the same size...or close enough.

Re: Inner Door Panel Foam Donuts

The 1947-66 trucks used the foam donuts behind the door panels, all the documentation we've seen which is the 1967-72 factory assembly manual and GM Truck master parts catalog show they were not used in 1967-72. We've seem them installed in some 67-72's and have always assumed previous owners added the 47-66 interior door handle foam seals.

Fwiw I've seen the donuts on some 72 doors that I'm certain were original.

Re: Inner Door Panel Foam Donuts

I had the donuts on my truck, and I know they were from the factory

Re: Inner Door Panel Foam Donuts

Richard, you made my day!

I finally realized where those door handle donuts went along with several other of my original and reusable C10 parts....MIA and long gone...
This takes a little of the sting out of getting my 72' away from of the restoration shop from Hell and back home to finish.
Slow but sure and a lesson learned.

Guys like you is why this site is the best.
Much appreciation and thanks again Richard
Sam

Re: Inner Door Panel Foam Donuts

Most of the parts suppliers for these trucks have them. I got some from Southern Kentucky. The upholstery guy said to just punch holes in regular foam... So a little block of foam with holes punched in it would work just as well.

Wound up not needing it on mine after I went to all the trouble to buy them.

I'd send them to you if I could find them....

Foam water pipe insulation is what I used on two of mine. Cut to size and your good to go.
