Default rubber grommets

I'm looking for grommets that will fit the hole in the side skin for the fuel line.
gap width is 1"
gap thickness is 1/4"
hole is 3/8"

Does anyone know a company that sells them?
I ran across a thread about these grommets maybe a year ago but can not find it again.

Thanks,
John Aiton

Be sure to order extras if you have an A model. The same size will fit in the gear weldments to keep the fuel lines that weave through there from rubbing anything.

On the outside of the fuselage. Fuel lines and vent lines.


On the inside passing through the gear weldment.


I think I sourced these from Aircraft Spruce. Look for AN931 elastic grommets.

Thanks for that web site, I ordered what I needed, had to order 10 minimum.

I should be running my fuel lines in the next couple weeks so the pics helped.I didn't know the line went through the gear mount.

How about this at Vans. There should have been some in the kit too. https://shop.vansaircraft.com/cgi-bi...roduct=bushing

I used these, they fit perfectly and went over both pieces of metal.
