Help with this heater box part please?

Can anyone help me with the name of this part on the right side of the heater box (gasket??) and possibly where I can get a new one?

If I recall, that gasket is no longer made, I used self-adhesive 1" x 1/4" thick high density weatherstrip.

Go to the McMaster Carr website, pick out a sheet of foam that appeals to you needs and cut your own.

Thanks guys. I'll try and make my own. And on a side note the upper and lower piece are not held together other than their mounting location right? In other words the gasket where the two pieces doesn't have to be mounted together but rather the upper just sits in the gasket on the lower?

I just used a piece of Truck Topper Tape.You put it between the topper and the truck bed to seal it.Got anyone close that installs or sells toppers?They might give you enough to do it or maybe a body shop

Or go to Home Depot where they sell the window and door sealing stuff.

The truck cap tape I found was white or light gray, the high density polyurethane weatherstrip I recommended is black.

I ended up buying 1' x 1/4' self adhesive rubber weatherstripping and it did the job. I also bought a can of spray foam insulation to fill in the gaps (if any) but didn't end up needing it. Thanks guys for the help and hopefully this will help someone else down the road. Now I have to finish putting this beast back together.
