I ordered the demon eyes so eventually i'm gonna have to reseal them, but i accidently broke the seal on one of my turn signals. I searched through and read on some things but i have a few questions.
first off, i need high temp sealant, but i should also make sure its waterproof correct?
and second, i read that some people sealed and still had condensation, and others reccomended taking the backs off, and that makes no sense to me. I just wanna make sure i do it right so i'm not blowing bulbs left and right after i do all of this.
Thanks

Just seal them up with some sealant -- high temp really isn't required, but it's recommended to be safe. If you leave a pin-hole sized air pocket in the sealant, you will get condensation, so you're better off just running backless, anyways, to keep the inside of the lights looking good.

i have heard that heating your lights in an oven will also prevent them from getting condensation..that is heating them and then sticking them back together..get the old sealent all wamr and gooy like and then bam stick them together..that is what the guy buildingthe demon eyes said to do anyway..
