Cant understand why someone from the company that makes them would not come on here or SOMEWHERE and announce these parts are available.

That would make a lot of sense, and I would certainly try it in their shoes.  That said, a lot of forums frown on companies joining to hawk their stuff.  The NMCOA one was like that.  Don't know what the rules are here about that sort of thing.

I personally would welcome some advertisers for things for our cars, since it gets harder every day to find parts, and still not a lot of aftermarket support.  I might be weird this way, but I buy car mags now specifically to look at the adverts to see what kind of new things are being produced that I might make use of.  I don't need to read the 75th rehash on how to degree your cam or paint a car ultra cheap.

They come out with stuff then you have to search around to find it. I cant understand why a forum would not want a part supplier to make notice of a new product specifically for a model the forum caters too.

I agree, especially when the forum is for cars that have so little support in the first place. If I had to guess, it's probably that the forum admins worry the place will get overrun with ads for Viagra. Smile

OK here we go, the gasket on the right with chrome trim ring missing is the new gasket from Metro molded parts. The other 3 gaskets in photos are originals that were on this spare set of lights I have here.

Overall they look like a good fit and are way softer the the old hard stock ones. I will not get them installed untill spring as car is in storage.

Better than me I have 4-5 sets of lenses none in prefect shape and most gaskets are so hard and dried out. I ended up using strip caulk strips and filling in leaks with that and you can not tell but its not a perfect fix. My pass side started leaking after washing car last fall. Its just s trickle but that's still water running down into trunk area.

Those look real good. I made a set back in the 80's with some leftover trunk weatherstrip and weatherstrip adhesive. Worked out great and they're still in my car.
