Default Pressure pads

Hi,

A bit of a generic question rather something specific, the pressure pads for holding the tape against the heads on several of my early 60s machines are pretty knackered, I very much doubt there any spares available so what's the best material to use for making replacements? Some kind of felt or foam like the self adhesive strips used for draught-proofing windows? I'm working on a Collaro Studio deck at the moment but I guess this would apply to any machines of that vintage.

Thanks,

Gary
