Custom O-Ring ?

My Deck Fill are too small and i am looking for a thick polymer/strng plastic O-Ring to adapt, something around 3-1/2 diameter, 1/2 thick. i have been looking in every hardware store in the area looking for something i could use without any luck.

any idea where i can get custom work done for small pieces like this in small numbers (3-4) ?

McMaster or Grainger and if they don't have it, contact Loctite or Permatex, they both sell/sold custom o-ring kits. Yards of butyl tubing with a special adhesive and cutting jig, so you can make up any o-ring you want.

You can also do a failry good job by taking a foot or two of black plastic tubing, or black vacuum tubing, or clear tygon tubing, forming it into a circle, splicing the ends on a 45-degree diagonal (not just butting them up) and then using a good glue to seal them. O-ring glue, or one of the crazy-glue variants that says it is OK for use on flexible surfaces.

If you do it that way, buy enough to make 2-3 and practice first.
