Rim Seal

I went to the hardware store to get the weather stripping that is supposed to be exactly the same as the bomber gear rim seal. Is the bomber gear version high density foam? The stuff I found was not high density but it is closed cell. I am worried that it is not sturdy enough to withstand the stress a spray skirt will put on it. Do I need to find high density weather stripping or do you guys think it will work? Also, what dimensions of stip have you been using?

Well, I can’t be for certain, but I did not get my product from Ace. It is closed cell foam that is non water absorbent; it looks feels and acts a lot like the foam that is in your bulkhead. The softer foam that I have experimented with only worked for a short time before it compressed and was waterlogged. Please keep in mind, my product is only $12 and I will give a guarantee, if it does not work I will refund.
I outfitted much of team Jackson at Fibark, and there response was very positive.
