Default Steering shaft issues

Hi guys, new to the site, can someone point me in the right direction to find the rubber grommet that the steering shaft feeds thru. I have a huge hole in the firewall that leaks on my XJ. I don稚 know what the grommet looks like because it was missing when I bought the Jeep. I知 having trouble finding a replacement. I知 sure I知 probably using the wrong terminology in my searching but I figured someone on here would know what I知 talking about. Thanks in advance.

I bought a small 1/4" sheet of neoprene, then just traced the old seal around it and cut it out.
I sprayed 3M Super 77 on the side that mounts to the steering column, and bolted the column back in.

Does it seem to be holding up good? Leak free?
