as everyone probably knows, Art is getting us a great deal on some smoked heads and fogs. Ive never put new headlights in before and I saw someone saying that they are pretty hard to put in. Well beyond that, I don't want to have to take them off to clean them up or ne thing. so i want to do it right the first time.

Does anyone have a good method to keep the headlights from "yellowing" up (oxidizing i believe is what it is correct)?

I have smoked headlights in right now and they are not hard to keep clean. Just give the car regular car washes. headlights arent really that hard to put in the stock ones are the hard ones cuz they been in there so long.

is there some kind of seal already on them or can you put a little more seal on them for safety sake to keep water from gettin to the inside? i saw someone post up on here that putting some clear silicone around the edges and maybe drilling little holes in the botttom to let it drain out works but idk if thats a good idea.. i was kinda wonderin how to keep water out of the inside. let me know.

Thanks for the info though on keeping the outsides clean! :thumb:

i think thats a problem on the 99-04 cars... ive never seen or heard anyone complaining about water in the 94-98 lights. i know ive never had any problems with factory or aftermarkets :dunno:
