Yep, the "flapper" gasket was OEM. Problem was, it typically didn't fill the gaps enough. I put a D gasket under mine (red car) to push the other out. Seemed to work. I wish JC Whitney still sold the...

Already there. Half the US is under a 'shelter in place'; Pennsylvania is now 'shelter in place' with no deadline. And yet, I'm seeing almost the normal amount of traffic on my road every day.....
