this. before u panic and have a knee jerk reaction, do this first. its normal for a rare occurrence of condensation in the headlights. if it is happening more frequent, or condensation fails to evaporate, then it is a problem.

I have retrofitted headlights and i don't use the rubber seals in the back since the ignitor is too big. no issues with condensation yet.

Thank you guys. Little bit of hair dryer heat without the seals, no problem. Put the oem seals back in. Got tons of rain moving in this wednesday. Will report back the results.

Installed my Oil Catch Can today. Modeled off Cyclingfit's setup. Will report back how much collects. I got some highway toad trips planned very soon. Catch can is stock without any added stainless wool or baffle.

Whole setup
Took an L bracket, drilled a hole. Used a stainless M6 x 1.00 by 12mm allen head bolt with washer.
Bracket nestled under the ground wires where they are out of the way.

Hey all!

Been low key. Decided to upgrade the hatch area lights with some 5050 white light strip under the cargo cover. Looks way brighter! Used some leftover wire, a junk led light base, and wired it to a barrel/tip plug for easy removal of the cargo cover when needed.
