foam insulation seal between blower box assembly and firewall/bulkhead?

I am trying to source the foam insulation seal that goes between the blower box assembly and the firewall/bulkhead. It's about 1/2" - 1" wide (going from memory I am on the road for work this week) and is form shaped like the outside edge of the blower box assembly. I would have taken a pic but my digital camera flash is goofed up.

I've tried Phil and I've also tried the local dealer here in Ft Lauderdale near where I am staying this week but its look like neither have it. Btw, its a SWEEET dealership. I saw a beautiful SL 55 AMG ???

Although not exactly the same application, I have used adhesive backed foam strips that can be purchased in various widths and thickness at the local hardware store. It is compliant and will sort of form itself to make the seal.

I recommend finding and using closed-cell as opposed to open-cell foam. The open-cell foam wicks water and holds it. Closed-cell foam seems to last a lot longer.
