NO, just make sure there's no condensation in them already then seal em. Make sure the RTV cures fully before washing it or driving in rain.

Re: Sealant for headlight!!

Yah RTV works best...clear or black will work great...I used black since the housings were black and I could see if I missed any spots better with black.

As said, baking isn't necessary, but give them plenty of time to cure before putting them back on the car.
