rebuilding actuators

I am interested in the forum on rebuilding the roof-moving actuators. I have found all the tools needed. However, I do not see where to find the Nitrile O-Rings that are needed for rebuilding. I also ask if there are any other parts that are needed to rebuild the actuators.

Thank you for the response. I decided it may be worth the investment of having all the cylinders professionally rebuilt. Now to see if i can get them back installed correctly including all the 100 zip ties and clips!!
