Rimmer Bros is still showing part code DYN10010 - now described as the gasket for the lip spoiler. It's under £2 but they'll charge you a fiver for delivery probably. May be worth a punt if you want the official rubber padding back on your spoiler. If this is the right part, you'll get a reel of between 1 and 2 metres of rubber strip with adhesive on one side to attach to the rear face of the spoiler.
This sounds very much the same as the rubber cushion strips fitted to the edges of the rubbing strips.
Those are 10mm wide. I'd been wondering where to source the material from!

Are these the nuts for the spoiler. There are 5 of them, but they’re in an unmarked jar! :oops

I thought I would try to find a plastic clip fastener for the boot spoiler. The white one at the very end.

After much searching in the garage turned up absolutely nothing, so the spoiler is still off the car. Another complete and utter waste of a day. 😭

Since the originals are NLA, has anyone found a suitable substitute, or could I get away with not having one in place?

Who's going to get a 3-D printer then?

I don’t suppose anyone has found a different clip since my last post, that would do the job?
