    Nope. My new GM gaskets from GM in 1985 didn't so I used black RTV around the outside where you see the black gasket.

    Last Time I had this problem I put the "Lovely Mrs Plater Tom" in the trunk with a flashlite. Worked for me..

    Spoiler studs? Camaro by Chevrolet emblem? Trunk lock bezel seal?

    I had the same problem. The taillamp gaskets took care of most of it. Do those first. Pay attention, the inner and outter gaskets are different. Next (with the trunk opened) run a hose on the rear glass. The water should run down the glass, around the trunk weatherstrip and down the rear taillamp panel. Look into the trunk with a flash light and look for drips. Do this before locking yourself in the trunk.
