It seemed like a good idea at the time

Most of you can relate to this story. One of my projects today was to replace the taillight gaskets in the GT/CS. More than anything else I just want to get all the new parts out of the guest bedroom and it seemed like replacing the gaskets would be a good place to start. The picture shows what I found when I removed the lens. So much for my nice easy 5 minute project!

On another note; If anyone is thinking about installing seat covers I strongly advise spending an extra 10 bucks for the good pair of hog ring pliers. The cheapies are nearly useless.

Doug, it's blue paint. At some time the back end was painted and someone apparently forgot to tape off the lights.
