Technical Source for big rubber plugs to fill access holes??

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Just Gary, Nov 23, 2017.

  1. The brake mc in my A Tudor is under the metal floor I'm making. I'd like to cut an access hole and cover it with a rubber plug.

    Something like this late '60's Mustang shock access plug, but around 3"x5".
    Anybody know of such a thing?

    How about the salvage yard. Go out get some Man time and scrounge.

  7. Try McMaster Carr. Or Steele Rubber, some cars had plugs like that in floor pans or the Fords had them for transmission access on the trans tunnel. Try Summit or Scott Drake.

    Also, do you have a pick-a-part local? 3 bucks walk the yard.

    You could always make a metal plate and attach it with screws.

    Salvage yards around you still allow you to just scrounge around?
     
  14. I also have had good luck with such things at the hardware store. I am blown away sometimes at what I find at the ACE hardware store up the road from me.

  16. Could be something 3" x 5" may be hard to find in a rubber plug. Maybe think about a metal piece with a rubber gasket and clips or screws that can be opened from the topside.

    These oval trailer tail light grommets could be made to work with some sort of cover that easily slides in, a little thicker than required but with a little creativity..................might as well give it a try, at $1.19, may be worth a shot.

    I actually found a decent assortment at my local neighborhood hardware store, sold individually. Also lots of grommets and plugs on Amazon, sold individually or mixed assortments.

    Ha, only two bucks here! I didn't think anything was cheaper in Ca. But the 'environment fee' eats that up. I'm recycling, why do I have to pay extra for that?
     
  23. Thanks, guys!
    Once again the HAMB has the answer.:cool:
