here's my finished verison - can't really tell in pic but it looks AWFUL up close...after it dries for 24 more hours should i just get some tweezers and pick out the excess rtv to clean it up some? (its the tail light on the right u can see the white outline)

gonna wash car too

When I put my taillights on it was kind of a pain to get them all the way threaded through. Are you sure they are on all the way?

yep it is kinda tricky to get em on striaght, at first i thought the gap was too much and i took it on and off a couple times but its on tightly now

i just did a quick wash, and.......we are dryyyy

look at that sexy dryness - gonna use tweezers to clean off that excess silicone later.




though now my left tail light is getting a little condesny lol...jk its always been this way but its no big deal cus the water doesn't accumulate inside, it just fogs a bit then dries up quickly.
