Anybody know of a source for Rustines MAFAC hoods? Right now I could use a set of full hoods, and it would also be nice to source some half-hoods.

No!

I believe they still can't find the materials to produce new gum hood products.

Google search "rustines france" and select the rustines.fr site result. Then "Navigate" to the "Bike" category. You'll see almost every hood product out of stock.

I emailed them at least a year ago, and they said they were working on it. But, I mean, come on! I think they're done with hoods.
