Lower Air Deflector Seal ?

When I dismantled my truck I had a lower a deflector seal that was stapled onto the radiator side of the air deflector. Is this a necessary seal? LMC does not sell a repro one and I can't find that anyone else sells one.

I think you could slit a 1/4" hose and slip it over the edge.

Yeah, they're available. My '49 has a replacement seal that I got sometime around 2012 but I do not remember where I got it.

Try Sacramento Vintage Ford. I bought one for my 51 there a couple of weeks ago. They have good online service or you can call them directly. They know their Fords.
Hope this helps
