Pull off your tail lights and check the rubber gasket under the lights. It is probally all smashed down. Get some new gaskets and install them then see if it leaks any more. That would be the best way to do it. Be carefull though those studs on the breaklights break off easy. Don't tighten them to tight. Just enough to smush the gasket a little.
