Meh...I'm gonna add clear bulbs to the turn indicator lights anyway...I'll check it then...

If those seals don't look too happy, put some vaseline on them. Plug them in, then smear a little more around the seal and back of the reflector housing. It'll repel the moisture for a good long time.

Jim, Remember what i said when I had water in the right lamp after washing it in the hanger? Thats when I got the air hose and blow dried it out. then i made sure the bulb socket was securely fastened. No more condensation.
