02 Cougar - headlight condensation

My right headlight seems to constantly have condensation inside of it. Obviously, seal is broken, but can this be fixed with caulk or other sealant once it dries out again? I am doing a restore on the headlights (used the 3M kit with the drill attachment - which works great by the way) and all the sweat inside the headlamp assembly makes it hard to see how clear it is.

We've tried sealing them and haven't had very good luck. Mostly since they've been fleet vehicles, we just get aftermarket lights.

We never spent much time at it but it wouln't hurt to try. You could use a soldering gun and weld the seams and then add some type of sealer. Use a hair dryer to dry the inside too.
