Guys, Romanz and I found a good replacement gasket. It’s $5 for a roll and it’s more than enough to do 2 sets of lights. It works great. It’s a 3M brand and it’s called Foam weatherstripping or something like that. We got it at Discount Auto Parts.
It works just fine. No leaks. And hell it’s WAY cheaper. I don’t have the wrapper but I do have some remaining foam. Here’s a pic.
if only i had that schtuff a week ago. i couldnt find foam anywhere - craft stores, home depot, lowes, wal-mart…so i got some silicone sealant and “fixed” so to say, the old gasket. no water yet, but i wonder if that silicone crap is gonna come off when it come time to fix them the right way.
How is that foam holding up? I saw that a while back, but wasn’t sure if it would work good. I noticed that when I took my brothers tailights off, the gasket was like stuck to the part of the trunk behind it. Almost as if it had some kinda glue, wonder if I should put silicone back there.
The bad thing is that I have a couple of stripped studs on my passenger taillight, so due to the fact there aren’t any nuts holding this part of the light down, I do get water in. But on my driver one, it’s fine.
