Hrm, well, maybe I'll clean out the car, and put a fire extinguisher inside. (My Dad and I both have the bad luck of having vehicle fires, anyway...)

And MetroMPG - nice picture showing the before, during, and after.

The size of the gap under your lights looks a lot like what I saw under my car (different make and all). I used a broken DQ Blizzard spoon to help shoehorn my weatherstripping under the lights, sticking it to the bumper fascia on the bottom, and sticking the top weather stripping to the plastic lense, again, like you did.
Current mod: Skidplate/Undertray for my MkIV Jetta. Next mod: CAD drawing for skidplate so other Jetta/Golf drivers can make one too!
