If these headlights weren't such a pain in the ass to get open I would start doing these retros for people. I have done quite a few retros in the past and these have to be the hardest headlights to open of them all. I finished my retro using the same components as the OP, I'm just waiting on the harness and resistors from retro-solutions.

The core exchange idea is actually a great idea. The last forum I was on a guy did exactly that, he bought a few sets of headlights and retroed them, then did core exchanges on the ones he sold so he could replenish his stock, retro those, sell them... it was a continuous cycle and he made a good business out of it.
