Has anyone successfully restored the white rubber bumpers found on Heralds? If so, I sure would appreciate any tips on what to use, where to find it, how to do it, etc. The bumpers on my Herald are dented a bit, cracked in places, and in need of a good cleaning, but I believe (hope) restorable. Thanks

I don't think there is much more you can do other than to give them a good scrub.
They are available new from Rimmer Brothers in the UK.

I'm with Nick. Pretty much all the major Herald suppliers in the UK have new ones (Canley Classics, Rarebits4classics, etc., as well as Rimmer Bros.) I've had only the briefest success even brightening old ones with bleach, white shoe polish and other tricks.
