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 mcmastercarr.com  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!

This shows the gasket around the edges, the door needed to be reattached because of rust and had a 3/4 gap and was twisted .with this sometimes I have to pry it open with a screw drive it seals so good.
