Throttle body gasket

The P.O. didn't set the throttle body gasket properly, and crunched it. I think that was one heck of a vacuum leak. It's NLA, has anyone made one out of something or have you found another source? Thanks

Thanks Bowlsby, I wasn't thinking along those lines because it was rubber and concave, but that's a good idea. I'll give it a shot. Thanks.

For a 1.7 the gasket is wedge shaped, for the 2.0l its flat standard type gasket.

I just re-used the original and smeared some RTV to make a better seal.
