Does anyone know of a source for the gaskets that go behind the back up light lenses on a 1960 Desoto Adventurer?

I've searched and searched and have come up empty so far.

Thanks in advance!

While you wait to find some real ones, you can make your own from EVA foam or EPDM (roof vent) rubber.

I was thinking of that and may have to resort to making my own. I'm hitting dead ends looking for them but someone may have an NOS set in stock. I can only pray!

If you know the PNs for the gaskets, I can ask my local Mopar NOS parts guy. He has 100,000 parts. The gaskets might be one of them. But he needs the PNs.

I went to Hobby Lobby and got some thin light gray foam sheets and made my own gaskets. A sheet is less than $3. If you have a lens it's not a difficult one to make, just need a pencil or sharpie marker, straight edge, razor blade and some cardboard to lay under the foam while cutting. The light gray blends with the plastic chrome and is hard to notice at first sight. I'm not able to post pictures easily on here cut could send some pictures if someone wants.

56D00boy - I'll check to see if I can find them somewhere.

b5rt - Great idea, if I end up doing the homemade route.

Both super ideas. Many thanks to you both!
