    One of the taillights on my 67 Dart has about 1 inch of water in it. How do I fix this and prevent it from happening again.

    Thanks
    Aaron

    Pull it and reseal with new gaskets from DMT or likewise.

    otherwise keep it garaged! :lol:

      Nope! The bulbs go out when they are full.

      Automatically too! It’s really cool to watch. Lol!

        That's just the blinker fluid. Factory option on these old cars.

          Drill a hole in the housing so the water can drain out. :poke::poke::lol:

          So what does everyone recommend for winter blinker fluid? Forgot how the brake lights come apart. Took it apart, going to let it dry and reseal it. I think I have the seal from the body seal kit I bought a few years back.
