"duct tape circles"

Has anyone ever found a source for these?

If, for only 5 or 6 bucks, you could get 40 of these, would anyone be interested?

Which, even if your not talking about, some may find useful...

Are these just used to trace an outline for where you'd like to have a glory hole cut?

C'mon guys, they used these on just about every type of Land Rover... mostly to cover/seal unused holes. Trouble is the trucks last a lot longer than the tape lasts...
Yes you could just cut squares of tape to replace them. You could also buy a $30 gasket punch and spend time making your own as shown in the video. But I have been looking for a manufacturer of the factory type round pressure sensitive circles since 2006 and finally found one. I am trying to gauge interest in offering a group buy.

The tassels will get either caught in the fan belt or ingested into the air intake. Either way it does dress up an engine compartment.
