Default oil cooler draught seal

Just finishing the rebuild of my 1600 AD engine and have found that the foam seal between the doghouse and stock oil cooler has disintegrated. The original was a foam strip' glued to the Cooler, clearly intended to ensure that the air flow passes through the cooler matrix instead of escaping around the ouside of it.
Can any VZI'ers recommend a suitable replacement material ?

Edit, just looked back through my readers ride thread. I used self adhesive heater matrix foam from eBay, heat resistant with 3M adhesive strip. Works well.

By the looks of it I doubled it up and stuck a piece to each piece of tinware

I imagine you can get it in various widths to suit.

Thanks Chris, that looks good, I especially like the fact that it is heat resistant.
Cheers
