How do you keep the headlights from "frosting" over when you glue them?

Please don't use solvent glue!

Use either 5 min epoxy, or some sort of white glue.....it'll save you a lot of grief! ;)

Testors "Clear Parts Cement" for me.

Pretty much the same thing as Elmers, it just tacks up faster.

I have used Testors gloss clear for years, for attaching lenses and photo etch scripts.

My weapon of choice for this is Tacky Glue (available at Walmart), which is sort of a super-Elmer's. But I've also used Elmer's and epoxy. The two things you DON'T want to use are tube model glue, and any kind of superglue (CYA) unless it's specifically called "fog free."
