Yes, I glued mine too. My rubber is an inch long and is triangular. Each side of the triangle also an inch across. The rubber isn't too hard because you need to pry it into place.

Can someone post a pic of what you're talking about? It's been so long since I disassembled my Jimmy that I have forgotten a lot of the little things. Are you talking about the sissor like arms on the top of the barn doors?

Thanks, azcornman

Can't post a pic, but in the pivot of that arm, there is a rubber bumper that will touch the top of the door jamb when the door closes. This rubber protects it from damage.
