    Is there anything that can be used to cover the holes left in lights after hideaway strobes have been removed from them that will hold up? I have the opportunity to take the strobe light kits out of all the outgoing trucks at my dads office and was wondering about this. The new owners have no use for strobe lights and would hate for these systems to go to waste. Each truck has a 90w 4head hideaway kit with 2 LED heads on the roof. Just thinking ahead... The holes may be in a spot where rain can't get in, but, i'm not sure! Anyone have any ideas?

    Very simple Mike, put some electrical tape or duct tape over the holes.

    Mike cut a small circles out of some heavy plastic and RTV it over the holes neatly. that way no one will notice and you will be sure it will last for the new owner.

    Buy the way I want first dibs on the used lights and I'll even help with the removal.

    I used something simlier to the previous post, but you can use them t cover up holes in electrical boxes and such. Just buy the 1 inch ones. Anyone know the name of what I am talking about. They have little tabs on the back of the that you fold to lock it in place to cover the hole. They are only about 50 cents a piece. When I used them I just popped them in the hole and used a sealent to hold them in place.

    I might want to get in line for them if you ever want to sell them.

    That's a great idea there cat320. I'm thinking place a patch the size of the hole onto the sticky side of a piece (sticky sides facing each other) that would go over the back of the housing. So you have the shiny side toward the inside of the reflector housing. [O]
