    I wasnt sure if I posted the picture on here right, so I included a link to my photos.

    I just bought brand new blacked out headlights, well, it rained today and my drivers side was fogging were rain dropplets were sitting on the headlight after the rain stopped???? Very frustrating, anyone have a clue on what I should do? Do I email the ebay seller and tell him what they are doing?

    Thats what I thought, I will probably call about getting money back first before I go re-sealing them.

    Thanks

    it's not hard at all to re-seal, it might be worth it just to avoid the hassle of getting money back, shipping (you'll probably have to pay for), then re-ordering new ones

    Crappy thing about those eBay headlights is that they are poorly sealed.

    Put your stock factory rubber rear seal cover that you had in your stock lights that and a little clear silicone will fo the trick.
    This has worked for me and other friends as well.
    Sometimes the rear rubber seals that they come with don't seal proper.
    Let us know good luck
