'61 Vent window drain rubber

Does anyone know where i can find the drain rubber for the vent window assembly? I replaced the glass and rubbers, rechromed and polished SS on the assembly. But when I was putting everything together I noticed a drain rubber (what's left of it) on the bottom of the assembly. There is a metal plate that holds a rubber/gasket piece (approx 5") that has a notch for the vent arm to regulator and a square nipple (looks like a drain). I've called all the major suppliers, no luck! I know it's a minor piece but I figure I've done alot of work to overlook a simple rubber. Any guidance is appreciated.

Also, I've looked through the assembly manual and shop manual but there is no reference to it.

Thanks

Hmm...
I think I recall something there...however my doors are all buttoned up and all works as it should...and really hate to pull it apart...
I searched and could not find anything either....

You could always put it together and if you ever run across the pieces...then install.
Would imagine where/how the water would drain...it all ends up in the door anyway...

You're right, I'll probably just reuse the old ones.
Thanks Brett.
