Default Bush DAC 90 /90A chassis mounts?

Has anyone produced these? Cone-shaped pins on the chassis go into them, then into cavities in the cabinets. They should be soft.

I could see if renovated Radios is interested in making them. Do you think that simply filling the holes in the cabinet with silicone caulk and them placing the chassis into it would work well?

Hi
I never found replicated ones and also looked for modern parts that would fit the purpose, but I was not successful. The original ones do come in a variety of conditions, from very hardened and cracked to seemingly new and soft (hence reusable). The silicone approach should work ok provided the pin is well centred in the cavities. Acid free silicone (no acetic acid) should be better for this purpose. Some time ago I thought about trying this, but ended up getting replacement cones in good condition here and there. I think it would be great if silicone radios could remanufacture them.
These very same cones are also used in the Bush TV22 and quite possibly in other radio and TV models from Bush.

I meant Renovated Radios, not silicone radios...
