    i just painted my headlights about a week ago, ive washed my car and they did fine but today i got caught in a big heavy rain fall and one of my headlights fogged up, i was wondering if this would go away on its on or will i have to take it back apart and dry it. this is on my rsx normaly it dont see the rain just got caught in it today.

    there should be a small venting hole in the back of your assemblies. if not, you can drill one. it'll allow for the condensation to evaporate, provided you don't live in a damn jungle like i do (my taillights have been fogged for a week now).

    sidenote, had to drill all-out drain holes in my '86 accord's tail lights because they'd get about an inch of rain sloshing around in them and asplode my bulbs.

    yay for rain...if you're a plant.

    yeh you could do that too. i went for the unnoticeable hole-drilling coz i'm a lazy bitch :) it works though, unless the ambient humidity is = or higher than that of the inside of your assembly, which would be the reason i'm cursing my taillights and minnesota right now ;)
