What?...

Maybe Clive can help? He may have contacts as he's shipping from the states all the while, or racing beat in America may do them

Racing Beat let me have parts sent in for the race car and pop them in the box for me. Only problem is, if they post internally you end up paying the postal charge along with the USA sales tax, in other words its not worth it on a small value item.

Also I hope he plays ball as I have tried to deal with him in the past and its not gone well.

If you need that gasket, personally I would say its really for bodging  purposes to get around flanges that don't line up  ::)   
All the best Clive

The issue is the mazda crush gasket is to small for the manifold. The groove is to big. Gasket too small

The mondeo ring didn't fit... But it fits in the mood pipe groove. If I double up the gaskets it roughly works

More pics. Welding skills are very rusty.
Tips are a temp measure until others turn up.

This is going to be a bit tight. Need to lose 20mm on the overall length
