I finnally solved the problem with the condensation in my headlights:D ...how i did it is, i placed Silica salt packs that you find in boxes when you buy shoes, or something with metal or electronic that cant get moisture in the box during shipping. well one day it dawned on me those would be perfect for stoping the moisture in my headlights. so far it has worked Great! i highly recomend doing this for anyone with the same problem..... if you have the "sonar" brand headlights all you have to do is pull off the round rubber part that covers the back where the High beam bulb is and then you will see the Gap in between the chrome part inside of the headlight and where the outer part is you place the silica salt pack right in there where you cant see it.

well...

im not sure how long it will last....probably quite a while....if not then i can take the headlight off and wiggle it upside down till the pack comes out, then put a new one in. hey, i bet you have a silica salt pack in a box at your house and you dont even know it yet. if not go to a store and ask it you could take one out of a shoe box. i swear it is THE only thing that really works! im soo happy. its been a crazy week.....if you arent doing anything tomarrow im gonna be in the area and i'll call ya after i get out of church and we could meet at southcenter mall or something.....like after 12:00 cool?
