Default clear corners

How come after I made my clear corners and super glued them back together and put them on they look all fogged up?

Do they look like there is a haze inside them, or can you see moisture. If it'* just a haze, then maybe it could be the fumes from the super glue that did that to the plastic. I've seen super glue do that to plastic before.

I used bathroom grade silicone calking to seal mine. It'* clear, fairly fumeless, and does a good job sealing it. Probably doesn't do you much goon now but if you do another set it might be worth a try.

It'* the vapors from the superglue. It'll do that. Need the part numbers and prices for new ones?

I used super glue and have had no problems. I first tried this with clear silicone, but I was stupid and didn't let it dry enough, and one of the lenses flew off. So I bought 2 new ones, and used super glue.
