I need to replace my identification lamps (the three little lights top middle, amber in the front and red in the back). I bought two sets of three little LED lights from a local truck parts store for this (basically this style: https://www.etrailer.com/Accessories...n/B168-18.html
), but although they come with gaskets I can't seem to install them in a way that is watertight (either the center opening or one of the two holes for the screws ends up allowing water in). I could probably glop them up with seam sealer, but I want to be able to install the lights now and then remove them later when I paint. Are there any tricks to getting lights like this to be watertight?
I'm also thinking of trying these: https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...connector/604/
since I could mount these directly over where my original lights were. I would only need one through-hole for the two wires (I'd use rivnuts for the two mounting screws), but how do I make this hole watertight with two wires going through it? I've seen the grommets with the sort of triangle things on the inside, but those don't seem to work completely.
Is there some sort of a waterproof socket that can be run through the bus skin underneath a light like this? Such that I could just plug this light in from the outside and wire the inside to the circuit, and then just unplug and unscrew the bar to paint?
Is something like this with a grommet: https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...or-1-led/5707/
Any other ideas on a good way to do this?
