VERY NICE

You did a good job on those headlights.
I have been thinking about doing mine but, I'm not sure about removing the lens cover.

Doesn't it feel nice that so much costs so little (compared to other mods).
Did a great job! Did most of the above myself also, besides lowering...have yet to tackle that.

Taking the lens cover off is not too difficult. I was switching from projectors, back to my oem headlights that I color matched black, so I was able to take my time. Don't see why one shouldn't be able to get it all done in a day, pending on paint/sealant cure time

Thanks! I was a little worried too, but figured if i messed them up, black replacements are only $60 on ebay.

I took my time, and just used a heat gun. Directed heat at sealent area and ir came off slowley, did paint, then reheated sealent as i put back together.
