    I was wondering how you guys patch the holes you drill in the reverse light when you take out the hide away kit.

    Whats the point of patching it. Most guys I know either leave them empty when selling the truck or take the tail lights and swap them in the new one if the make and model are the same.

    Real Duct tape, the foil, it's adhesive, it's silver, it's reflective, it keeps water out of the fixture.

    Silicone works better and lexel is even better than that.

    We recommend 1" hole rubber plugs, then silicone the edges for added protection. These plugs are cheap and can be found at your local hardware store for around $1 each. This method would give you a nice seal, and would allow for the housing to stay moisture free.
