purchasing black headlights

So I did bhlm over the summer and now my left light is fogging up like tits. Does anyone know where I can purchase normal black headlights not halo or w.e? I looked at octanemotorsports but the BBB and they have an F.

I would just open your light back up, clean it out, reseal using c-clamps, then caulk the seal. Mine have never leaked but I clamped them pretty good and caulked the heck out of them.

Save your $130 for some other mod.

Another way to remove moisture- fishing line and a packet of the silica gel they pack with new shoes and stuff. Tie fishing line around the packet and stick it through the hole for your light bulb. It'll absorb that moisture over 24 hours- then you pop it out with the fishing line. Then get a tube of the clear silicone (walmart, paint section) and hit up every crevis.

That is an awesome idea. Rep for you.

Thank you sir. I just hope what we are dealing with here is moisture-related and not paint-fogging

Thanks for the tips guys. But a clip behind one of the headlights is broken and it doesn't aim straight so I was in the market for a new one anyway.

They're all the same. A lot of sellers don't bother updating their pre-canned post information.

I bought from this seller and had no issues at all:
