Kidney Grill Gasket?

Post by anchored » Tue Aug 13, 2019 2:50 am

Looking for someone that has a kidney grill gasket that can take some measurements for me. when my car got repainted the gaskets went missing and now my grills are super loose.

Thanks so much.

Welcome to this (slightly insane) hobby!

Kidney grill gaskets? I never knew there was such a thing. :-k

Yeah. the grills are sold with a rubber gasket behind them.

Obviously not for preventing water but I assume vibration. mine are too loose now and it will damage the paint if I do not address it soon.

That definitely falls under the "I learned something new today" category. Thanks!

Aloha,

What measurement are you looking for? Mine are off the car right now.

A photo beside a ruler so I can pull measurements, and a thinkness measurement would do it for me!
