Brake booster seal
#11
When I replaced the one on my '71 the original was some kind of soft gasket material. I cut out a new one, using a similar gasket material.

It's supposed to provide a seal between the back of the booster and the firewall so water can't get into the car interior. Doesn't seem to me like hard plastic is going to get the job done.

I believe it was a hard plastic material from the factory, my two verts have one similar to the original poster...

The one I have has a lip that seals into the rubber seal. It’s not just a flat piece of plastic, that’s why I don’t think a regular flat piece of gasket material will work. .
