What have you all done when pulling your cars apart about these parts? Any supplies?

I am in the process of replacing my hatch with a fibreglass one. In the process I have noticed that one of my rubber boots from around the hinge is no good the other is average at best.
Now I am confident I can make a mould from my good one. Then I can use the mould to make latex copies. I am thinking latex because I am used to working with it. It is strong. Just think of the strength in a latex glove then multiply that by about 6 due to the thickness.
The latex isn't cheap so I would expect that each copy would end up being about $15 (per hinge) plus postage. Any body interested?

i'm no latex expert .. but is it poss to mix some black pigment / dye into the mix before you mould it? This way they could be made black,
ill take prob one or two sets as well. getting them black just add black pigment as mentioned by acf. guys at work did som eplastic mouldings using silicone and latex. they just added the pigment.
though u can prob make it out of silicone too maybe cheaper??
