    Default Rubber dust caps

    I have somehow missed the boat on these rubber dust caps. I've got LEDs in my low beams and the stock dust caps don't fit. I looked around before and apparently missed these as a potential solution. So they are just open. Sometimes I get a lot of moisture in there. Has anyone used this type of rubber dust cap plug? I see ones that cover all, and some that allow the heatsink to come out through a hole in the middle.

    NICE! Is 90MM the size needed for our cars? I have an HID I kit I bought 5 years ago and never installed because I didn't want to break what worked.

    I meant to measure one of my dust caps last night but got distracted by other things. I also need to take a closer look and get a feel for what kind of shape would work best. I think I'd prefer a plug that leaves the heatsink exposed. Granted that will prevent a perfect seal, but it'll still be a lot better than what I have now.

    If you could cut it small enough it may seal up. Seeing that I hardly drive mine and NEVER in wet weather, I don't think I'd have as much of an issue.
