I have a VC Resolute.. Not Acclaim.
I found my old post on this site, which was a copy and paste of somebody else:

5/16" for door. The griddle depends: If it's a "raised griddle", that is it doesn't sit flush w/ the top, then use the same 5/16". If it's a flush griddle, then get the fancy 5/16" armorseal stuff with the meatal wound around it. Armorseal doesn't work w/ raised griddle, but standard gasketing can work w/ flush graiddles. Just deosn't last as long. Is there glass? Use 5/8 or 3/4 adhesive tape. With the cast panel, 1/4" regular rope works fine. Careful removing old stuff, (asbestos)
My door gasket is finally shot after 6 years+ of "new to me". It's literally falling apart.. Not causing any major issues yet, but it is also not that cold yet (and this is our 2nry heat), but I do smell smoke every once in a while.

Based on the quote above, 5/16 or 1/4 will do.
Can somebody recommend where to get the fancy stuff for the griddle?

All the kits I have found online are for Acclaim (and not Resolute I)..

Thanks again.. Even with a wheel brush on my drill probably took 20-30 mins to clean out the grooves..
Probably not the best idea to do it in the house.
Doing it by hand may wear you out.
Stove seems happy now.
