I have bought a Vivitar series 1 135mm f/2.3 lens but the rubber band has to be replaced as it's broken and it died Sad.

So I am looking for a replacement rubber. And I think the cheapest and best fitting would be the rubber of a Vivitar 70-210 f/3.5 or that of a Vivitar 28-200mm f/3.5-5.3.
If somebody has one of those lenses, or parts of them, please let me know. I only need the rubber.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Quidam. That looks to be the perfect pattern for the rubber that I need.
I can glue it onto a thin piece of rubber to make it into a ring.

A few months ago I did a lot of searching on the internet to find rubber that could be used on lenses but I did not find this seller.
So I assume he (and his material) showed up rather recently on eBay?

Edit: I doubt if this is the material that I need. They say that it's "synthetic Leather".
The band that I need to make has a conical shape though, so it must be possible to stretch that material.
I have written a mail to the seller to ask him if this "synthetic leather" is indeed stretchable, and if so how much.
