Thanks for this post, Chazz ...
Found this thread when I was facing the challenge of installing a new headlamp and new seal. The seal was an incredible pain.
I took the OEM-seal delete approach and was very happy with the outcome. Saved $75 and didnt have to be institutionalized. The Chazz approach was very easy and looks really good too.
Notably, I was tracking at Sebring last Saturday and came across a beautiful Lotus Cup Car and notably absent from the car were the OEM headlamp seals per the pic below:
And here is how mine turned out:
'06 Exige, VFII Supercharger, CharlieX Tune, KAAZ CR Gear Set, Larini Exhaust, Custom Header, Nitron Doubles, ACT XT Clutch, Hypersport Roll Cage, CF Canards, Moroso Oil Pan, Cup Wheels, Slicks, AP Big Brakes x 4, RTD2brace, Front Brake Ducts, Sparco Steering Wheel w/ Quick Release, LETSLA, SSC Shifter Cables, DBWpedals, IMRP Monoballs, Machined Uprights, Recaro Seat, APR Wing, IMRP Rear Diffuser, Schroth 5-Point Harnesses, Prosport Gauges, Traqmate and some stickers.
