What are these called and where can I buy them?

Hi,

A friend of mine is restoring an old Massey Ferguson 148 (I think) and needs some little rubber grommets/standoffs which go behind the radiator grill to stop it rattling. They are designed to push into about a 6mm hole and have a conical shape about 12mm in base diameter. See photo below.

Does anyone know what these are called and where I might source them? I tried Woolies Trim but no joy.

Thanks,
Craig.

Try searching for isolation washers or spacers

Panel buffers or bump stops.

They use something similar on the toolbox of my Vespa.

Thanks guys, I knew I could rely on the LB forum!!

Special mention for ReMan - I was too busy trying to figure out what the generic name for this item might be that I never thought to look for it directly!

I have passed on the details to my mate and Im sure hell want me to pass on his thanks too.

No problem, I was curious!
I know they not exact same profile as the rotten ones but perhaps they were previously replaced.
Perhaps check the parts book
