They didn't have drain holes? Or, you didn't mount them upside down, did you?

If the casing'* aren't glas, you could drill your own drain holes. 1/16 inch should be big enough to work, and still small enough to not be noticeable...

Hrm....drilling eh?

What type of aftermarket lights do you have BB?


I've got Angel Eyes.... one is cracked.. ugh.. and the other has condensation in it. I really don't want to drill into them.

You could try ripping them apart glass from frame, then resealing them a 3M silicone. I did it on my old car. It wasn't that hard.
