So I purchased a set of headlights from a forum member that were seperated and the inside bezel painted black and then sealed back together. I've had them for about 2 months. It just started getting chilly and we had a lot of rain last week.

Now both my headlights show moisture and foggyness real bad. To the point of embarassment. It does seem to dissipate some when the headlights are on, but not completely and the moisture comes right back.

Is there anyone local to South Florida area that could give me a hand at maybe seperating and resealing these lights so this wont happen or have a good idea for me to try on my own? I just dont want to ruin the lights beyond repair.

And get some canned air. Squirt it into the bulb socket hole to purge out the moist air. Let it evaporate. Canned air is CO2 with zero moisture in it. Avaiable at computer and hardware stores for cleaning keyboards and stuff.

Fill them with water and see where it leaks first . I use a hair drier and then set them in the sun for the afternoon . I like using the same silicone Ron recommend they even have some that goes on white and dries clear so you don't miss any spots .

I have removed moisture with a hair dryer, but it keeps coming back the next day! I'm not even driving it in the rain now! Is it due to moisture cooling down and condensing again? How can I make sure that the moisture is all out? Should I leave the back covers on the headlights off for a few days? Thanks!
