window screen bead
My first brainstorm when I thought I might be facing a hunnerdten clams for gasket was window screen bead -- the neoprene stuff you hold screens into screen frame with. That would probably do the skinny kind of gasket I have to replace. As it turns out, tho, I have a friend trekking to Bob's BMW Wednesday, and they have the five clam gasket I need in stock.
My second brainstorm if you have the wider 54 buck seal would be McMaster Carr (mcmaster.com). I'll bet a fat man they have some kinda gasket would work. Those guys have everything.
Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism, complete with witch hunts, funny outfits, and solemn preachers thundering doom. The name of God is changed to Safety; the name of Satan is changed to Lawyer; but the object remains the same: to suck all the life out of life and make you live on the husk.
