I have a new BF, which has marker lights
on the top and bottom corners. One or two have condensation in them after we drove in the rain. So I tried to take one off but since it did not just pop off I put the screws back, I do not want to use excessive force to pry them off. The screws have a black soft sealant residue on the threads. Appeared to be good waterproof stuff.
This is the problem. I saw a couple of the marker lights
seem to have a place or two where the clear sealant did not completely fill in the gaps.
So I used Goop Marine. Then unfortunately I tried to smooth the bead of Goop. It did not smooth out, it balled up. Looks terrible. According to the Goop Tech data sheet I have to wait until it dries them scrape off what is not wanted.
So how is Goop smoothed out? I licked my finger before smoothing, I tried using a dry finger, neither worked.
I have a tube of 3M 4000 coming in the mail. I have 3M 4200 on hand but it is a large tube for a special applicator, which I don't have. I have Life Calk. Also a couple of tubes of silicone, which I bought before I found out it would be better to use something else.
What sealant to use around the marker lights
? Which, by the way, have condensation in them. They are supposed to be "sealed" but it sure does not seem so, hence my need to run a bead of sealant around each one.
