se5 rr lights

Post by geert van hout » Tue Dec 10, 2013 2:00 pm

hi all. does anyone of you know whether the lense to housing foam gaskets for the se5's are being made by anyone? i know they are now available for the later units (se5a onward), but i can't find anything on the L782 units (without the reverse light section). thanks for your replies. regards to all, geert van hout

Is this any good, or is it housing-to-body?

I have looked into this befor and have found nothing, but have found you can be very inventive with a good quality craft knife and a sheet of closed cell foam.

the ones on ebay are the plastic backing ones that go in between lamphousing and the cars' body. i just thought that if anyone is doing them, i neednot re-invent the wheel. i'll start making moulds/patterns and get them made if no one else does. i'll keep you all posted through this channel.

Have you talked to Mark Wilson? I think he makes the 5a on seals, so will have a source of foam if not a template?

se5 rr light seals now available, including new ss screws to fit the lenses. the seals that go between the lenses and the housing are made from closed cell foam that doesnot absorb water. interested parties can pm me for furtther details and photos.
