Re: Headlight Sealant Info **READ ME**

silicone is fine.

for people who have moisture in their lights...it might be because they're sealed too much. i was messing with my grandma's car the other day cause it had 1/8" standing water inside. took the bulb out...pshhhh...pressure like opening a soda bottle. took the light out, drilled a few small holes in the bottom, and the moisture is almost gone off the lens.

even sealing the crap out of a headlight lens doesn't mean its sealed. theres still air getting through the bulb sockets, especially around the 9006 and 9005 bulbs. those rubber boots are NOT airtight.

think about it...water needs to evaporate. water getting in through the top (for example) needs more sealing. residual water on the lens means it needs more ventilation. another reason ebay headlights "fail" and fog over is the lack of ventilation.

Re: Headlight Sealant Info **READ ME**

After reading through here, I realized that the other day when I was in the local bike shop here in Nashville, they sold hondabond. Bikes use is for sealing the stator back in. (brings back bad memories). It was only 8 bucks, which seems to be less than what everyone else is paying, but it might be a smaller tube.....not sure. Anyway, that's just an idea.

Re: Headlight Sealant Info **READ ME**

I used regular old bathroom caulk. (I think it was silicon based, but I'm not 100% on that). I only used it on the spots where the sealant that was there from the factory seemed to be lacking from my taking it apart.

Did the blackhouse DIY at least 6 months ago and haven't seen any fog or issues since.

x3. On my s2k I used black though since it's black from the factory. It was fun walking through home depot anouncing to my friend "I HAVE BLACK CAULK!"

TUBHMOOBVAJ has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Re: Headlight Sealant Info **READ ME**

This is what I use and you can pick it up at your local auto part store. In the past I have use Silicone 2 and wasn't very pleased with the result.
