I have a field/utility box that I used to use for hunting (storing shells, duck calls, etc) It's been in the attic for a couple of years and it looks like the heat has destroyed the water proof seal around the lid. the seal looks like it was made of really thin foam. Does anybody have any ideas what to use for a good replacement material? Do they sell thin sheets of foam (really thin) that I could cut out my own replacemnt? Any help is appreciated?

RJ,

Go somewhere that they sell pickup tool boxes. They should have the seal strips with the adhesive backing for sale there. I replaced the ones on my box not long ago and bought it at TSC. Comes in a roll.

A thin coating of Silicone will work fine. Clean the surface area, apply a thin coat of the silicone in place of the seal. Allow to semi dry. Apply a coating of Vaseline to the boxes edges and close the lid tight. The vaseline won't allow the silicone to stick to the edges. After an hour or so, open the box, wipe off the vaseline and you'll have a waterproof box.
