Ha!  I spit on your toes, sir!  At least you MAY find a replacement at a
salvage yard. What's the chance that you'd find a sunroof gasket in good
shape at the same place?  Probably slim to none.

Why do I spit?  The 'much more simple' gasket (by comparison to the
mechanisim) is only ~125.00 CDN from the dealer!  Works out to ~40.00

I can get all new  door seals for my TR6 for less than that!

Sounds like the gear drive is not a bad deal by comparison.
