Hood seal for 89 200tqa

It was audiwholesaleparts.com and the site seems to be dead now.

In all reality it's not worth buying a used one at all. They are all 20 
years old now. I've tried to pull a "great condition" one off the hood and 
it just fell to bits in my hands. It's this reason that I'm very seriously 
considering moving on from my 5000's at tax return time this year. One (the 
wifes daily driver) is likely to get sold for dirt, one to be crushed, and 
one (my 500hp daily driver) I don't know what to do with because I doubt 
anybody would buy a car so heavily modified. I just fed up with the 
worn/rotted door gaskets and other trim, the self flushing power steering 
systems, and the crappy replacement suspension parts that don't last 1/5th 
as long as the OE parts did.

Hi Cody--

Thanks for the response. I wasn't able to find a website by that name or
any similar name that came to mind. I perused a number of Canadian sites
and came up with nothing. I guess I'll have to try Shokan and other
