Rainbow patter is caused by failing convergence IC's. Both of them have to be replaced and 6 PICO fuses (looks like resistors yellow in color, soldered into PCB) have to be checked and any open fuses have to be replaced. After replacement convergence have to be adjusted again and stored in memory.
It is impossible to upgrade resolution of your TV set.

Projection tv problem lens

Good Day;
Hey, Thomas;
As you stated very few companies provide the rubber seals.
The best thing to use is silicon, place it where the seal is. Remove the CRT from the unit, drain the fluid, clean area, replace with Ethylene Glycol. Make sure you let the silicon to set up, about 24 hours.
Good Luck, Day, Big Irish.
