I thought that this idea may help others with the same problem.
Someone or something broke a small dime sized hole in one of my tail lights. I wanted a quick and simple fix until I could send for a new lens.
I had a tube of clear silicone calking and squeezed out about marbles worth onto a piece of paper. Then a used some red enamel spray paint…one little shot…and mixed it up with a toothpick. I then transferred that glob of silicone to a piece of wax paper and spread it out to be the size of a quarter.
I then carefully placed this over the hole and very lightly pressed with a finger to spread it over the edges of the hole better.
8 hours later I carefully pealed the wax paper off.
The wax paper just helps to keep the silicone from sagging back out of the hole. My first try was with Aluminum foil, but the silicone sticks to the foil.
The aluminum foil works great to keep body putty from sagging, but not for silicone.
Good as new…or until I get a new lens.
