Any Suggestions? Sealing Mustang Headlights

Hey guys I bought a pair of headlights for my 03 GT off of ebay on monday and I should be getting them either today or tomorrow and I will be sealing them I watched the video on AmericanMuscle already and just wanted to ask my mustang family for any last minute tips that you've learned from sealing your headlights on 99-04 Mustangs.

Thanks Everyone!

Read this because it'll take me a second to get to the point:

I cracked a plastic coolant tank on my race quad after crashing one time. The replacement was expensive and had to be ordered. I went to Lowes and bought some Loctite Marine Epoxy. It mixes up gray in color, and dries into substance that is probably just about bullet-proof. It sealed up the crack in the coolant tank and has also proved useful for sealing my Mustang headlights.

So if you don't mind that it's gray, and you don't make a mess of it, I'd recommend using to seal the headlights.

BTW... the stuff is sandable and also works well for filling in the holes in your trunk if you ever do a spoiler-delete.

I'd say clear silicone caulk would be fine!

LOL
It probably would be fine, but my headlights are "marine-grade" now.

You can't use too much. And let it dry! I jumped the gun and had to clean up the mess...

In the event that you get condensation in the lights after sealing (I could not get rid of it no matter how many times i dried them and resealed..) drill a few small holes into the housing from the bottom close to the front end...As you drive, air vents through and removes the condensation

On my '92 car I had back in the day, when it rained, one of my headlights would fill up with water. I could've kept goldfish in it.
