Pissed off at my headlights

ok, i am getting so pissed at my headlights b/c they keep condensating back up! i dry them out, they fog back up. i dry them out, they fog back up. so i finally sealed them with silicone, that worked for a while, and the last 2 days it rained and they are worse than ever! i am thinking about just getting angel eyes b/c seeing them is annoying me so much. so basically the point of this post is 1) anyother ideas or 2) if you have angel eyes, how do you like them and where did you get them? thanks

well if your car is under warranty then bring it back to the dealership, if not i dont know what to do, you have tried everything. This happens to a lot of people, including me and i just left it alone and it went away. Angle eyes can be made at home with home products. I dont know how my friend has done it but yup

go to autozone and ask them for antifog...it comes in a yellow box or bottle. its bout 3 something. Then you gotta take ur headlights apart and apply it inside. Thats what i did to my friends car and my cuzns after i took their yellow plastic...

Let your headlights dry out totally then do this. Pull them out. Get some masking tape and mask off the seam all the way around about 1mm around on each side (1mm = roughly the thickness of a dime) then take some Goop automotive and smear it over the seam to seal it up. Peel off the tape right after you smear it down and you should have a nice little strip of goop all the way around. I say Goop Automotive instead of silicon, since silicon tends to collect dust. Good luck!

^^^u still have that problem bro?? man, that sux..nothing happen to mine so far, been 3months already..and the silicon are starting to peal off a lil but i filled up all the cracks around it...that was what causing the condensation in the first place..well good luck, there's nothing much i can say but try it one last time, dry it out totally, then use all purpose silicon all around, and use ur finger to press the silicon into the crack around the headlight, wait 24hrs and install it back onto the car..oh yeah did you take off the lil sponge behind the rubber thingy?? i did that..so far so good..Good luck.. thumbsup

BE SURE to clean the inside first with glass cleaner. Let it dry then apply this. Let it dry again for 3-5 mins and apply another coat...hope this helps! goodluck!
