    Hey, anyone on Oahu know how to install black headlights so that they are tight and don't leak or fog?

    If you bought the ones I showed you you should be all good. I've had mine for two years and haven't had any problems with leaking or fogging.

    Never sealed them and never had any problems. Only now after two years the clear is starting to peel because of sun exposure. I plan on just sanding off the manufacturers clear and smoking them and reclearing though so it's no biggie

    I'm not aware of any coatings. If your truck isn't constantly parked in the sun it shouldn't be a problem.
