I have one spare, but I just checked, and it's a driver's side, sorry.

If yours have rusted reflectors, they're not too hard to restore; just sandpaper and silver or white paint and they're as good as new. I think there's a how-to post around here somewhere.

you can buy aluminum tape that is very reflective. heat gun to get the lens off, clean everything up, add tape, assemble with clear rtv. use a rubber kitchen mat from walmart to make a gasket to seal taillight to car.

Thanks for the suggestions, I might give that a shot on my old rusted set that I still have lying around.

Mikie/MKS Motorsport sells those seals now actually, I already have a couple.

The best-looking set I've seen restored actually used gloss white paint on the reflectors. I know it seems like you should use something shiny, as close to a chrome-plated look as possible, but the diffused glow off the white background looks really nice. Anything is better than dull/rusted ones, though.

Yeah, the pre-cut gaskets from MKS (I think they are still made by Natallica) are the way to go.

I wouldn't reseal a housing with silicone. You'll be cursing if you ever have to open it up again. Butyl rubber, like the factory used, is the best choice.
