Headlight oxidation fix

Well my driver side headlight was getting water in there and fogging up like crazy. So me and the old man went at it today took everything apart, cleaned it, and resealed it with a ridiculous amount of silicone. We'll be putting everything back tommrow, I'll give you guys an update later on how effective it was. I know a lot of you 00 celis out there have fogged up lights. Let's hope this works. smile

yea, it worked well with no damage to the headlight itself. it was a pain getting through all the epoxy tho, i had to bake it twice.

Preventive maintenence. If you are 100% sure that you have no moisture in your lights, take em out and seal them up real nice to make sure that nothing gets in there.


Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.
