    I need one of the old tapered exhaust flange gaskets for the firebird. The ones that look like they are made from pure asbestos. What are these things called? I'm planning to ring a few shops tomorrow and find one, but I have no idea what they are actually called.

          They sell different sizes, I linked that one as it matched your pic.

          What size do you need ?

              You can buy it in 1 inch and 2 inch widths on Amazon. I just got a roll of the 2 inch last week for the exact purpose you are wanting.

                Just select your size either 1 inch wide or 2 inch wide.
                I think all up including delivery it cost me ~$60 for the 2 inch width.

                        Has the Covid tax affected all cars for sale? Just had a look at Porsche gt3 pricing, I’m very confused at how they are priced

                          It's affected a shitload of things, right across the range of cars - IMHO at least.
                          For example a pov-spec 2yo Yaris with average km's cost ~$6k more than an equivalent Jazz (with lower km's) 5 years ago. I'm willing to accept I paid too much, except cars like it were selling after less than a week of advertising, so I don't think I paid too much over the odds.
                          Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                            I went to the local parts shop and got the 'donut gasket' thingy yesterday. I needed a 60mm ID, so a bit of a strange size, and they had it in shock for a few $ more than the similar stuff on ebay that would take between 1 and 3 months to ship. Winning!
