I was out today, trying to find a adhesive I could rely on. Something that would flex in cold weather and maintain stability during the warm season. I also wanted something clear and auto leveling to make a more OEM finish.

Now this is what I researched and found link here.

Now my question to you, is how did you apply yours to avoid running down inside the headlight assembly. Did you apply in between the lens and the groove of the headlight? Or did you put the lens in the grove than apply the adhesive on the top?

that's a good find!
I cleaned out the old adhesive and applied into the groove, rich layer of it. When I was putting it together I had some overflow but I just wiped that one clean and that was enough to seal it perfectly!

here is the picture of it





and then the finished product is all wiped down to where you can't really see any excess!
