Ok. I finally did it. I just got done painting my headlights. I was sitting on this idea for about three months now, and today I figured, since I had nothing to do, I would give it a shot. Ok everything was very easy, untill I got to removing the clear plastic from the housing. That silicone they put on these headlights is very hard to remove. I found a pretty good method that worked for me. I did the first one in an hour and a half, and the second one I did in 35 minutes after finding out my method. Also removing the silicone from the pieces after they are apart is also very time consuming. So after 6 and a half hours i'm done and I'm waiting for the silicone to cure. Will post pics later after the lights are back on my car
