Tail light gaskets

I had the same problem... Got some aftermarket tail light gaskets, but quickly noticed that they won't work properly.

Luckily I had a second trunk seal. With some adaptations (cut of the bulge), I got a pretty good result. The rubber is very soft and nestles nicely around the tail panel. For better illustration see PICs below.

cheers Wolfgang

Wolfgang,
can you explain what you mean by cut off the bulge?

Sorry typing error, meant the bugle or nose which I cut off - see second picture.

Remember no matter if the gasket seals or not the water will sit in between the gasket, tail light and the rear panel. If there is a scratch or a place for the rust to start it will rust. The design with the gasket inside sucks but I guess they thought it looked better. With a gasket on the outside the water would shed off and dry out with it inside is just sits there until it evaporates or rusts and runs out.

3 M Marine Sealant can be had in black and used to truly seal the part to the car and prevent water intrusion, but it dries slowly and is nasty stuff to get off if you get sloppy

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!
