I have a hotbodies undertail and since it fits like crap water seeps through when i wash it. Also, the taillight peice if you push it falls in. What can I do to hold the taillight in place. I thought of a glue gun? I want it to hold the tail light in place but dont want it to be to permanant. Any Ideas??

Thanks

on mine, that double sided foam tape crap was the first thing pulled off....and I put the lights in there with a dab of hot glue to hold it in place, but just a tiny bit, cuz the hot glue doesn't stick well to it...then I used Liquid Nails to hold it in for good. Any silicone would work, but don't use too much, you may need to take it out someday

just caulk it in place...then if you ever need to take it out you can just getcha a razorblade and cut it out.

Thanks guys. Did you actually use the caulk? Sounds like a good idea. Silicone seems a little to permanant for me. Did you caulk around the whole tail peice? thanks again

ohh no not around the whole piece just the headlights. And i didnt use a bunch. Just cut a small amount off the top of the nozzle and use a small bead of caulk works great!!!!!!! :mrgreen:

i wouldn't go all the way around...even as stock parts, they are not sealed. I used the liquid nails and put about 4 big "globs". Let it dry and it was solid. Let it dry overnight tho!

i just sealed in the bottom part of the tiallights and left the top alone. works good. but definately don't go around the whole tail section...you'll be sorry if you do and probably have a chopped up tail section if you ever have to take it off.
