The problem is the tags were also painted over.Maybe the only answer is to buy new tags,but would prefer to keep what i have.

If they used a cheap paint easyoff might work, or as Beppie said try some convetional paint stripper on a brush on the edge of a tag.
Get the stance right, followed by fit & finish.

My original 682c`s not the new repo`s. Went thru at least 6 sets to get a nice pair. Markers are converted to signals and the original steel back lamps have been modified to use halogen bulbs.

33 Commercial.  Commercials have painted buckets not stainless steel.

Question??  I have a set of 682c's that I want to use on my 5 window.  I've got them painted, wired up for turn signals on top...all ready to go, EXCEPT I can't find a source for the rubber gasket that goes between the turn signal bezel and the headlight bucket.  Can anyone on here point me to a source.  'Been thinking about seeing if I can make a pair out of an old inner tube, but would rather have something that's not makeshift.  Thanks.

Thanks...I have those, they go around the parking light bulb.  I'm looking for the rubber gasket that goes between the parking light bezel and the main headlight bucket.

I don`t recall seeing one on any of the lights I have/had.

Who says size matters???  Went small on the Chemical City Coupe.  I have the headlights mounted on a quick-disconnect headlight bar and usually run the car without headlights for more of a competition look.  I can have them out of the trunk and installed in about 3 minutes.

Here's pics with and without the lights:
