Anyone know of a supplier for the cover strip for the rain gutter 26 tudor. It is about .505" wide and .017" - .020" thick, has a curve of appr 1.5" radius?

Use the tape from an old tape measure.

Dave,
This is what worked for me. 1/2 inch steel tape. Not sure if the later Tudor is the same.

Best regards, John Page, Australia.

The measuring tape is a pretty good substitute; the shape is a bit different, so if you have an original cover, SAVE IT! The difference is so minor, only a "rivet counter" will notice.

The blue tarp was used to provide a contrasting background. this is the raingutter on the driver's side of my unrestored 26 Tudor.
