I found out over the last couple days of rain I have a leaky seal. It looks like crap too. It had a little over tablespon of standing water in it, I rolled the water around all the seams and couldn't find a leak. So I drained the water the best I could.


After about an hour off and on with my wifes blow dryer I got all the moisture out of it. Besides some water spot on the inside it looks like new again. (which I can over look)


I covered all the seams in sealant eproxy to hopefully seal the leak.

maybe a diver guy or the treasure chest that opens with air bubbles...

It's a good question but it's just showcasing the problem.... so I say it stays.

that SUCKS though. those little water spots would bug the hell out of me. Then again I forgot that one of mine need to be sealed too as it fogs up after a car wash.

looks like you got it sealed up tight. hopefully it stays that way, headlight moisture is a b[:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]h
So far it been back on the car for 11 to 12 hours to and from work and no more moisture fog.

actually these are new got'em in early march first time i've had any issues. But black machs will come later.

am i the only one wondering why this is in the showroom..

water in the headlights suck.
Figured members post up their build threads here so why not. I figured other members would like to see i fixed the issue without needing to crack open the caseing.

Ya I thought they would bother me too but you can't see'em unless your on top of'em cleaning'em or what not and at night with the lights on you can't see'em at all.

true that's good.

at least it's not a leaky roof which is what I thought this would be about before I looked at it. take that tablespoon and make it an inch or two of standing water in the footwell and you'll get my problem. :p
