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

Update - deadlights are installed and do not leak!
However my initial above noted installation method was slightly altered. While screwing down the deadlights the butyl compressed and extruded out beyond the edges of the deadlights. So I cut around the perimeter of the deadlight with a plastic razorblade and cleaned it up using the stab and pull method. This left me with no gap for the DC795 so I skipped it.
