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.
