    If by covers you mean that you have new lenses, I'd love to know where you got them. After all the hours I've put into restoring mine, I'm curious

    Besides that, what about the gaskets itself? Take silicone off those or just put more over?

    Oh alright I thought u had new lenses not blacked out covers. Why paint the bezel and cover them up? As to resealing your headlights, I used clear rtv and removed the majority of the old silicone before resealing it. Didn't beat myself up trying to get it all. I have yet to get any moisture inside the housings. If you're careful splitting them, most if the old silicone will come off on the lens and is much easier to remove than it is to dig it out if the housing.
