Hey guys - thought I had this figured out.
Purchased the Red RTV that seems to a popular sealing solution from Amazon.
Thought the 3 oz bottle would suffice to create a custom gasket on both boxes.
Applied the RTV around lip on the box (not the lid) and even smoothed it with a plastic putty knife.
Laid the wax paper on top and gently closed the lid.
When I came back about 30 min later I peaked under the lid, in spite of using nearly the entire tube, on the 2 boxes the wax paper only made contact in a few spots.
Either I'm doing something horribly wrong, 3oz wasn't enough, or my lid isn't sitting real clean on the body.
Any suggestions? Should I stack more RTV on top and try again after this batch cures or cut my loss, clean it up and buy rope?
(Bonus Question - How come OK Joe owners aren't often seen RTV sealing the parallel seem of the FB?)
