Got it!

I have replaced the headlights yet again, haha! I still have the Hella Dynabeams, but for now I got Mach HID's installed:


I also cleaned up my hatch a little bit with a blue fire extinguisher from 2.0L:


Ok, so here is the real reason why I took off the dynabeams:



In the above pic, you can see that one of the trim rings fell off. It happened on the way to FocusFest :( So, here is what I got going on with those:







Since I had the apart, I decided to customize them a bit more :) Since all the other lights(except fogs) are black, I decided to blackout the Dynabeams. I am painting them with duplicolor perfect match, why you ask when it is just black? Well I like the Honda black that has a little metal flake in it lol



I am also color-matching the trim rings:



I even left off the Hella logo off the trim ring so it can look like one sparkly jewel when I put the lights back together:





Here is kinda what it looks like, now this is in a dark room, I have already looked at it in the sunlight and they look great!



So, why are these not back together yet? Well, I am adding one more color :)




That is the high-beam housing. I ordered yellow stained-glass paint so the highbeams can be yellow

What caused the ring to fall off? You would think for such a pricy head light it would have stayed together better.

One of the adjusters was broken, causing the light to rest on the ring. I plastic welded the adjuster back, so I shouldn't have that problem again.

Did you take out all the wiring, bulbs, projectors, etc when you baked them open?

What would that be? I need to open up my Machs but I have not been told what can and can't go in the oven. I have searched too and came up with nothing.

Now I get what you are saying. I didn't take off anything when they went into the oven. There is wiring and stuff that you cannot get to unless the lights are apart, so what's the point in trying to take them apart before you take them apart.
