Passenger Taillight Issue

1968 Chevelle Malibu

Looking to see if I can get a starting point to diagnose an electrical issue with my passenger tail light.

Works perfect when lights are on but turns off when brakes are pressed or driver signal is turned on.

Signal light works but is dim same with hazard lights.

X2. On the 69 the tail light gets its ground from the metal prongs on the socket and the surrounding hole for the tail light. I assume this is the same for a 68. Prongs not making a good connection?

Thanks I will take a look this could very much be the problem as I lined the entire trunk with a rubberized spray.
