As a side note to sealing outdoor enclosures - 

Years ago one of the OTs mentioned that fact the he
used moth balls to keep insects out of outdoor
enclosures. I have a matching network for my 80/160
vertical. See:

Every summer I used to get ants building in the thing.
I placed a small plastic cup with half a dozen moth
balls in it inside the enclosure. Never had any insect
problems again. The moth balls appear totally
compatable with the "large" electronic compoments in
the box. I've been doing this for 15 years or so with
absolutely no problems.
