    Just got an localized impact hit on my tail light lens this morning, backing into a vise in my garage. Its a second generation tail light and the impact is right over the main bulb.
    The impact caused spider like crazing about 2 inches in diameter, and did not break through. I would anticipate that moisture could get in the cracks and condensation could easily occur.
    Anyone have any ideas on repair. If this makes any difference, I do live in a cold climate where it snows, and the temperatures are usually in the teens during the day in the winter.
