  • Hawk taillight Housing question

    Does anyone know if there is a gasket that goes between the
    tail light housing and rear fender/body on a 58 Hawk or does
    it bolt up without one. The shop manual does not show a gasket
    but it seemns a likely place to have one.. tks,

    I don't think there is one, but unless you are going for a show resto it might not be a bad idea to improvise one.

      There isn't one. Of course, as Nate suggests, it might be a nice addition. Just make sure it can drain easily at the bottom! Don't want that thing retaining any mositure that might find it's way past it!

        I think the only year gaskets were used on a hawk between the tailight housing and the body was 64.
