Oh, wow, those latches look like the originals, but in stainless! Did you have to drill new holes, or do the new ones fit with the old holes?

No drilling needed.

I have to drill out my teardrops. In the VTS teardrops, there is groove that the plastic lens sits in. I rolled up butyl tape, but the aluminum was so soft, that it buckled under the small amount of tape and the lens wouldn't sit flat.

Best option I've found is to use Vulkem on either side of that grove on the backside, then putting on with Olympic rivets, then sealing the hole inside with vulkem where the wire goes through.

Some folks put silicone to hold down the lens and seal water out of that as well.

Hmmm... I thought silicone and aluminum was a no-no.
