    I bought some POS Black headlights off ebay and they leak like crazy. Im looking for some BHLM'd stock headlights that were done right, and dont leak. I can trade my stock chrome ones out as well if needed, and theyre in great shape. Let me know what you got. Thanks

    I bought a pair off e-bay. Seeing as I wanted the BHLM, but my stock ones were beat up from over the years. Just put a good amount of silicone on the e-bay ones and they've been great. Been down-pouring all day and no signs of leaks.

    Yeah I took the one apart that leaks and resealed it with silicone and gasket sealer. It worked for about or week or two then we got a bunch of rain one day and it had standing in water in the bottom of the headlight.

    I did my bhlm Friday evening and it rained all Saturday and it didnt fog. I reuused the factory glue.

    If you have the time, I'd suggest taking it apart and using 3M window weld in place of the silicone. Viet2100's how-to recommends window weld over silicone.

    Doesnt really help you, I know, but the headlights might be salvagable.
