Where do I find the gasket for turn signal assembly where the base meets the paint?

I have what's left of a plastic style trim

Thanks

Ken - it is available from the usual vendors. It's quite an experience installing it - when you receive it, it is just a straight piece of plastic shaped 0-0 in cross section. You have to get the base of the turn signal assembly to fit into the 'groove' of the plastic and hold it in place. It seems impossible to do, but perseverance pays off.
Good luck!

Kenny, I think this is the one recommended because it doesn't discolor the paint: https://im356-911.com/collections/exter ... -drop-m107

Are we talking front or rear turn signal assembly here? Big difference between the two, and it's the front assembly gasket that gives me fits. Greg got it right, but I might add that warming it with a heat gun or hot water helps somewhat.

I was mistaken, Kenny was looking for the front. He now has the link to the ones available from Stoddard: https://www.stoddard.com/64463149505.html.html

To make it easier to install the front turn signal profile and the ends of bumper and rocker deco bases, get a set of notching pliers. They make "V" cuts which make the curves much easier to make.
