try baking in the oven. Search "baking" and I think you will see a detail instructions on baking headlights with precise temperature and time.

You should have gotten them from JLevi....His instructions are amazing!

Anyway, you need to bake you headlights.

Do one light at a time. I normally use around 220 degrees for 7-10 minutes. Remove all screws, bulbs, etc first.

Make sure you put it on a cookie sheet, over a towel, so that it heats evenly.
