    I bought a set from CARS and they looked a little different from the original ones, but fit and sealed fine. I have washed the car several times and have not had water in the lens issues.

    wanted to know any updated info on this thread. I'am also looking for a new or decent set for my '72 housing.
    To all that have bought the gaskets from Cars inc. your pic's and reviews are needed !, from what I've read Car's gaskets are the best out their? Any one else making these ??

    If you are not a purist......you really don't need the gaskets.
    Drill a 3/16" hole directly below the bulb socket and water will exit the housing
    if any gets in there.....did this on all my cars and never had a problem on any of them and
    it has been 20+ years.

    As I researched the foam sheets to try and make a set of gaskets and after not finding anything locally I purchased a set from CARS inc. I did notice like everyone one said that the material is not nears the quality of the originals. I also notice the gaskets were from a 70 housing, they are using this gasket for all the years since it will work but a little different. After all is said and done it's better than nothing at all. I did like the way they fit snug in the housing and for $9.50 plus shipping it's not that bad. I have attached pictures for your review.
