Re: Bedding Deadlights w/ Butyl tape, DC795 and Screws

I've never used butyl in combo with DC795... but have had success with straight 795. I do have the deadlights standing off the cabinside surface 1/16 or so, allowing the 795 to create a full contact gasket. I followed it up with a bead around the outside as you described.
