Default T-Rex tape saves a headlight

We all know the power of Duck Tape and now there's T-Rex, Gorilla, etc.

I had a headlight go out and when I checked it the assembly was full of water. Well, a good inch at least. One of the bulbs popped. I had a couple spare bulbs, a hair drier, and T-Rex tape. Took off the assembly, dumped the water out, stuck the blow drier on the headlight bulb hole and turned it on to blow through the high beam hole, resulting in a dry assembly. Ran the tape around the seams so this wouldn't happen again. Greased the sockets with dielectric grease and put the replacement bulbs in, reinstalled the setup. Works!!! No need to spend money on a new assembly when you can tape away your problems.

Where I live, this kind of thing is called "the perfect excuse to stop and frisk"

Fortunately, the tape isn't visible. I made sure of that.

I thought the popo in Chicago didn't bother anymore with the pretense of having cause for a traffic stop.

No, they just don't do the paperwork now.
