This subject has probably been talked about to death, but i have condensation after doing DIY Blackhousing. one side is fine, and ive tried resealing the other side 3 times and its getting to be annoying to have to slowly heatgun it to get it off and reapply seal. This time around i was thinking about buying 10 cases of seaweed for my friend, and keeping the HUGE Dessicant Salt packets, and putting them into my headlight to absorb water in the air. But anyone got any better ideas before i salt my headlights?

do it again and lube it everywhere withthe silicone. and remember to take everything off this time, old oem silicone and the clear silicone... they are useless now.

from my experience, dessicant gel packs, silicon packs of any size of type wont really make a difference in keeping the condensation out. Silicon seals around the housing will get messy if you keep having to reapply it. Like Kiet said, clean off all the old seals and put your headlights back together again. This time when the housing and the lense are pressed together get a clear silicon type II tube and cut the tip to open just a small hole. Now stick that tip into the crevices of the headlights and squeeze hard. Make sure the silicon completely fills up the open spaces with no gaps left. Continue around the rest of the headlight like that. Let it dry overnight and then reinstall it. If you get impatient you'll mess up the seal before it properly dries.
