ISO/WTB unobtanium Turbomatic saddle spares

Miracles happen every day but the impossible takes a little longer - I’m looking to replace the elastomer bumpers on two otherwise enduring Turbomatic Gel Flow saddles - the red and blue parts in the photo, especially those that hold the rails at the rear of the saddle. When worn the saddle creaks incessantly in use at the rail ends.

I guess in this day and age 3D-printed replacements are a potential solution but that’s uncharted waters for me.

Happy to pay whatever fair market value might be, or swap for some parts from my micro collection of Campagnolo oddment spares…

Iím of no help here but hopefully someone out there can help. Like you said maybe hire a local kid to 3D print since you have the old pieces on hand. Good luck! How old is saddle?

Cheers thanks. I bought two both NIB about 7-10 years and 20-25000kms ago but I think they were first introduced much earlier, maybe early/mid 00s. Andre Greipel raced one for much of his later career…
