Default Base gaskets

A base gasket for my midget, can I make one from a corn flakes box or is there a gasket to purchase?

Corn flakes boxes are a bit on the thick side, heavy brown paper is better, or look on ebay for proper gasket paper.

Hi,

I dropped on four unwanted rolls of gasket paper at my local auto spares shop. More than happy to share for postage. PM me if you want some.
