(I know it's not exactly air-tight), but just curious... Thanks for all the info!
Its cool. I like to help out when I can.

I just set each headlight on the rack in the oven. One at a time. I had some condensation because I didn't evenly place the new adhesive in one spot correctly. So I just corrected it and reheated to reseal it and its fine now.

I used Krylon Fusion For Plastic-Stain Black. You can get it at Wal-Mart
