different ways of clearing up the fog without reopening. put a hair dryer into the opening for the bulb and blast away. if that doesnt work, do the opposite and stick a shop vac in there. this happened to me after i washed my truck, it fogged up pretty good. i swore i would eventually get to it, but never did. it went away on its own :D

I love how some people say this is as easy as just a can of paint....

If you still continue to have issues with fogging, it's typically because there isn't a good enough seal with the original caulking. Place a good bead of silicone around the edges and gaps where the the two pieces of the headlight assembly go together, should take care of any future problems.

You still are a nOOB :lol: It still took 3.5 hours of time and not just a can of Paint. if you did not do it right it would have taken longer OR cost you the price of a headlight ;)

after putting everything back i had to take the lights out again today I took a hair dryer to them and let them sit in the sun for a couple of hrs and bam dry and clear, put another bead of caulk around and let dry for a couple more hrs put them back in and seemed to be holding up fine for a couple of hrs now they are getting moisture in them again...have no idea what the hell I am going to do but will keep u posted.

You want to make sure that you get everything sealed up nice and tight because if moisture stays in there, it will eat away at the reflector. Maybe you should heat them up again to get the glue gooey again and clamp them together some how..? I don't know, I got lucky and sealed them up nicely my first time.
