security light bulb seal

I went to replace my passenger side security light (BTW... my book says to use #1157, however I had an #1141 in there and just replaced it with an #1157) and when I removed the cover, the foam seal was all dried up and cracked and now useless. Has anyone had to replace this foam seal, and if so, where did you get the seal and/or how did you fabricate it?

Jerry - I just use a sheet of thin packing material...like the stuff you wrap around objects to keep them from breaking during shipping. Don't know what it is called but it it is whit plastic/foam-like material that comes in a large roll. You can get it in different thicknesses but I had some from a package I received once and used it...about 1/16 of an inch thick.

I've used plummers putty around marker lights with good results. Easy to form, use and cheap.

I got some at Bell Road RV in Phoenix. They ordered them from Gustaphson Lighting (574) 522-0871. The part number is L-8085. I couldn't buy them directly from Gustaphson. Hax
