Well I heard from somebody that the cathodes themselves are waterproof, but the tranny's aren't. Verify this first before going by it. I didn't put anything on my cathodes, just ducttaped the hell outta the tranny's, all around them and the connections...

Yes, the cathodes are waterproof.. .the trannies aren't. Ducktape the vents and i would use liquid nails to waterproof the wires going in and out of the tranny.

I think it should work. If i were you i would put some on a piece of board and let it dry... then dip it in water and see if the water beads on it. If it does then it should work.

Those "red" messages show up only on your computer right?

Because I see one that says "Hey DragonJeep, thanks for sharing your thoughts on the Oznium forums..."

Cool!

I found a special material that you can use to waterproof stuff, what i found is liquid electrical tape, its says its waterproofs permanently and it only requires two coats minimum.
