was it a PAR46 by chance? I was thinking about trying this some time just for giggles. the size is off by 1/4" on the small side but that shoulnd't be a big deal with the big rubber gasket.

Jeep4l Strange.. no luck i guess, same setup & installation made by a friend of mine (jeep garage & passionated mechanic). Kc DL are working like a charm now for about 2 years with -20 and + 35 degrees (not farenheit )

Yea, after draining the hole its a little better but they still get some water in there. Let them sit in the sun or turn them on and there ok. No more pooling. However when water escapes through the drain hole i made it does show evidence of rust :/

tab22092 Glass, but i found what the problem was. I have an mbrp light bar that mounts the lights upside down. After i put them on we had about two solid days of rain. The mounting point and swivel is not sealed. Its just rivet joints so water got down in there. Was a whole pool sitting at the bottom of the light. Lucky i found it before it killed the lights. So i cleaned it out and put a little wd40 inside the housing to drive the rest of the water out and drilled a small hole in the bottom (top) part of the light for a drain. Hopefully this solves the problem! If not i have to buy new lights :/

OhSixTJ Maybe it's just the climate change from being in your house to being outside. Let them sit in the sun for a while. Check them tomorrow.

Condensation with daylighters

Hey everyone,

So i purchased some 100 watt kc daylighters the other day and finally got them all wired up on my bar. They look great and are bright as hell but they have condensation on the inside! And its not just a little it takes up about 50% of the lens. It will cook off if i keep the lights on but i want it to look good during the day as well lol. My old man has two pairs and he has 0 condensation. I contacted kc and they said this was normal as they are not a sealed unit. I call bs. Anyone have the same problem or now how i can get rid of it? Pics to follow.
