Hey, just what I was going to say, but to add to that you can use the clear parcel tape to wrap around the profile afterwards to seal the surface.
Compromising with out of control government is like living with a lion, sooner or later the bloody thing will eat you .

You accept the tyranny of the state when it's not being applied to you, when it is: it's too late.

Thanks - I'll remember that for the future - this one is not big enough to warrant it. When I get a big ding, I'll do all the dings...
