I'm getting to the point where I need to find a gasket for my fridge build. Does anyone have any leads in a good gasket? I have roughly a 1/2" gap between the door a fridge face. I'd like to use rivets or screws to attach it to either the inside of the door or to the fridge face. A e shape gasket would work or a p shaped one as well. I also like the idea of a flat silicone gasket. Any ideas or leads would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Ken
i had a 5\8" gap on my door and bought a D shaped gasket that is hollow in the middle from  I used a food grade high temp silicone to adhere it.  a year later it is still perfectly sealed and has not pulled apart anywhere.  
I would look at this part number 8815K26 at McMaster-Carr.

If you look at this build by ScooterMagoo you will see how he installed it. (click on build)

Good Luck!

By chance ballagh do you have the sku number to your gasket? I cant seem to find it. Thanks
9141k924 is their sku.  and i used a high temp food grade silicone to adhere it.  duct taped them down and sealed the door for 24 hours.  1 year later no leaks no pulling apart anywhere.  very happy with it.
On my frig smoker door gasket I just used the 1 inch foam door seals from home depot that has the ons side that has the sticky tape that you pull off ,it worked great and compresses for a great door seal .
We have used Tadpole before  works great
