Well, I finally bit the bullet. Here's a teaser pic?



Should be finished and installed tomorrow. I'll update this post with pics as soon as it's done.

You painted it black right?
I bet it is going to look great.
It'll help reduce glare also.

Yep, it's black - low gloss black engine enamel. I got a sneak peak of how it's going to look on the car because I played with my spare headlight first.

Oh and by the way, DO NOT try to take a short-cut when you're baking a headlight. I tried to hurry things up and I didn't even follow my own "headlight backing recipe" that's in the "how to" section. I can now present expert testimony that 20 minutes at 350' is NOT a good thing. .

Nothing good. How about melting areas on the case, the yellow side marker and one corner of the lens. Not to mention the spider web heat lines thoughout the entire lens.

Luckily it was my spare - that I managed to get my hands on for a fraction of the cost of a new one. And it's still usable for it's original purpose - experimentation.
