As for gasket..... I'm not familia on the 07 and below models. But as fas as i know they just use any type of gasket sealant maker. I opted to used the original stuff the HONDA BOND sealant it was like $5 online.
+1 on the rubber mallet. a flathead screwdriver will work, but a rubber mallet is the best option.
