Is there rubber under the chrome of the hood and doors and rear of car?  Any idea of where to find if needed?

Well, my car (Cab B) does have rubber under the 25mm chrome trim that goes from the radiator to the start of the trunk area.
I don't have anything under the trunk Star or the "220" pieces.
The parts catalogue shows the chrome trim and the rubber.  You can check the classic center.  Niemoeller does have a link to a "rubber profile" page, but it is in German.  I haven't tried to translate.

As ar as I know, there is no release bearing available that works. I modify a later ponton era bearing by removing the rear grease chamber and using a special metal seal to keep the grease in. I also machine the carrier so this seal fits tightly.
 
I can do this for you if my machinist is available.

Looking really good!

It's nice to see the progress you've made on your project, and it looks like you're on the home stretch.

Does anyone have an extra fender garnish for sale?

No leads yet? 
Is this trim piece specific for right/left, or is it mountable for either fender?  It looks like it is symmetrical and would go on either side.
I suppose, if none can be found, you could use the current one as a model to have someone fabricate a duplicate.  Although the cost would be ridiculous.
It looks like a part that you should be able to find somewhere, but may need to be chromed.
Certainly not a show-stopper for continuing the restoration in the meantime.

Scott,

thanks for replying.  Its not specific.  I happen to have 2 others but they are extremely pitted.  I scored that perfect one on ebay but can't seem to find another one in good condition. 
No reason to fabricate.  I have a bunch of items to go to the chrome shop but they are brand new items from Noiemoller but they don't have this item.  I will see what the chrome guy can
do but I think the extra ones will need some metal work if at all fixable.
