Default Rear door rubber conduit

Would anyone know where I can source rear door rubber conduits so I can run cables to my rear doors.
Cheers Perce

To my knowledge there are no read door rubber conduits/boots. All OEM power to the rear doors is provided via contact plates and spring loaded pins.

The 270 degree door opening will be difficult to accommodate with rubber boots or a looped harness. That said, I believe that the NCV3 models and Ford Transit use harness loops even with 270 opening doors. Those doors/pillars are designed for that though.

Perhaps the Transit/E-series/NCV3 parts can be adapted to the T1N doors? Commercial overhead doors often have moving connections with pads and conduit, so maybe search in that domain?

There are two spots on each door for those contact plates. You can get three contacts for each. I think the best source of these is a junk yard these days.

True, but if the application is lights or speakers, you may wish them to function with the door open...
Another domain to investigate are spiral cables: https://www.google.ca/search?q=12+awg+spiral+cable
