I'm pretty sure it's specifically acetone that dissolves polycarbonate. It's about $6 at most stores? Nail polish remover is acetone, but has additives that may mess up the works.

here's the vid I remembered seeing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2ZRKPshPVM

Yeah, that's makes sense. They're different types of molecules. Next time I think of it, I'ma snag some acetone

I had this problem with my Tempo and I went through about a dozen bulbs before I fixed it...I drilled a small hole right at the bottom of the lens so the moisture would drain...never had a problem after that...and never blew another bulb because of moisture splashing on them when they were hot...

If the seal method you used doesn't work try drilling...I might have put two small holes in them just to make sure there was flow but I can't remember now...it's been about 25 years since I did that...
