Hi guys,

I got a question concerning the gaskets sealing the body to the taillight housing.

Which side goes to the body and which side is the one that goes to the housing?

Here are some pics.

First one is a top view:

This is one side reading "DC":

This is the other side with no markings whatsoever:

My guess would be the "DC"-side is the body side, but my guesses have so often been wrong in the past, that I'm open to suggestions! ;)

Was there used any kind of sealer on the gaskets at the factory?
