driving light gaskets???

I was checking for leaks on my 63 tradewind and noticed the riding lights front and rear dont have gaskets on them. I went to camping world thinking they will have some but was told they never came with them. i know the 3 at the rear above the rear window are leaking. I guess I will have to use some vulkem to seal them. No gaskets....sheesh

Yulkem sticks really well to plastics. It might make it pretty difficult to service the lights later. My 63 does not have gaskets either but I think I would cut gaskets from sheet rubber rather than glue them.

If you are talking about a gasket around the plastic, I have no idea, but I bought some rubber "o" rings and stainless steel screws for my running lights. A few folks have had this issue, but mostly from the screw not the casing itself. The "o" rings seem to work.
