Headlight seals
 
I have had two 986 boxsters in the last couple of years and both had headlight seals that sort of turned to a black goo and reminded me of a polyurethane sealant. I searched and searched for replacement gaskets and they only come with new headlights. A few months ago I was in home depot and came up with some Frost King Silicone tear drop profile self stick weatherseal. I stripped the headlights of the old seals and stuck this new weatherseal to the lights and VOILA. I have attached some pictures. I couldn't be happier.:dance:http://986forum.com/forums/uploads02...1499297230.jpg

Nice work! Thanks for sharing! :cool:
What part is the "wallah", though? I've never heard of this and Google doesn't seem to know, either. :confused:

You are welcome.

Have Google check the urban dictionary, A shortened, slang term for "Waheyat Allah," which means "I swear to God".

Nice find! I've looked, but have never seen this stuff. I'm sure it will help a lot of people.
Jenny say kwa! :D

In French, it is "Voila." Nice work too, thanks for sharing!
