4AM and I'm listening to The Moody Blues "Strange Times"

The Clear Caulking is dry, and it worked like a charm. cool

Took an extra day to double coat the weakest points
..and to re-enforce where the wire is attached at the
buds, and the plug... and where they all join.

Well, I'll let you know how well it holds up under use,
if it works out, then we have a fix for frayed wires
going forward... but remember... my wires were grease
& oil free... otherwise I wouldn't have even bothered.
