Default I need better ventilation in headlight cav. Inside of cover foging>>

I changed Halogen headlights to led's- so I guess there's not enough heat to keep it clear in there.. So I need to find a way to vent that cavity without picking up road dirt . Some kind of deflector vent or filtered vent.-. Anyone know of something out there, or made something that works?? I have small windshield type rubber seal around the lexan light cover.(channel the cover fits in,then lay's over body).. So at present that area is sealed-up except for a small hole just below the headlight. The car is a 07' Shell Valley Coupe.

Adding another hole to the cavity with allow air to cycle thru the area. Not fast mind you.
What works best is add a 3/16" or 1/4"drain line to the new hole and have it hang below the car where air will blow across it. Scarf cut the end at a 45deg. Face the opening towards the rear of the car. Air flow will create a vacuum effect due to the scarf cut.

Another cleaner looking way IF you have Sceet tubing already installed for brake cooling is: Insert the drain tube into the brake cooling hose, ensuring the Scarf cut is facing the brake side.
