That was not an opening panel, it was a fixed piece of waterproof cloth. The newer technology to stamp steel roofs was displacing this older construction.

All materials used should be compatible with current ethanol-laden gas.

I agree that how you bond the rubber to the steel is not the major issue. if the visible pattern is the same as the underlying steel, like 41-2, you can look at spray up. When the underlying steel is flat and the pattern is in the rubber, it requires a substantial tooling investment to do it.

The compounds required are not that special, most are exterior EPDM in the appropriate durometer

The 42 convertibles and LWB cars use the 41 traditional bodies, so the 42 you show is the same as 41. The 46-7 flying lady is much harder to find than the 48-51 cormorant.

Some of Steele's products are contract manufactured, so Newbie you may know the manufacturers. I know Cadillac Rubber did some extrusions for them.

I believe you are correct about the 21st series 6 and 282 both using the same 120" wb. The "traditional bodied" 41-2 had different wheelbases for 6 and 282.

I think your cormorant is a 22nd-24th series bird. You might want to stay on the lookout for a 21st ornament, or check the 20th series parts car which uses the same one as 21st.

Steele used to make replacement rubber but it's been out of production for a while. Fortunately the outer pattern is the same as the underlying steel, so spray-up in polyurethane is an option. Your upper stainless trim is standard Junior trim. Take good care of the side pieces - those are not common in your unusual length

I've see a 22nd series car with one but I do not know if it was sanctioned or aftermarket
