Help with my TYCs!
OK, I installed my black TYC's and proceeded to wash my car. When the water reached the lights, it leaked in around the edge and made some condensation around the outter rim of the tail light. cry I finished washin the car then took the lights out to dry them, but my question is what type of sealant could I use for the edge of the lights?

Yeah, like Billy said, nothing to worry about. If you recall from when you installed them, there's a rubber seal around the inner edge to prevent any of that water from getting near the wiring. smile
