Question 1955 chevy steering column seal

Has anybody run across a better steering column firewall seal than the sponge seal that is offered by classic chevy or danchuk. I am looking for something that fits around the firewall opening and seals from both the inside and outside. If I have to I'll take and make one. Thanks for anybodies response.

Talking Thanks for the suggestion

Thanks for the suggestion and photo's. I ended up going the way of taking 3/4 inch thick rubber and cutting it to just larger then the opening, then cutting a grove in the center of the edge that fits the opening. Then drilling a 2 inch hole where the steering column goes through and put it in the firewall opening. It worked out just right with sealing the opening firewall opening and the steering column opening. Again, thanks.

Some of the posts to this thread were lost due to the server crash the other day.
But, it looks like you've got it done to your satisfaction so I don't think we need to any reposting.

Glad you got it done and our ideas helped.
