69 Tail Light gasket leakage....

Anybody come up with the perfect solution to water leakage aroung 69 tail light gaskets?? I have heard that aftermarket gaskets are really bad. And mine are definitely leaking.

I'm thinking about re-using the original gaskets and running a bead of Black silicone RTV around both sides of the gasket.... Any thoughts / opinions?
