bay_wolf FINISHED! (except to add some weatherstripping from my old headlights)

bay_wolf Small update:

I've got both lenses restored (still a few scratches but not noticable enough) so the next step is to wire them up which will be done on Friday... Hopefully.

bay_wolf Here's an update on pictures. I've still got to add a little more sealant for safety and then restore the lens on the headlights (3M kit with a drill to polish). And repair the mounting tabs along with wiring them in but it should go fairly quickly from here.

You'll never believe it with the thread being this old but I finally have them assembled! It took me forever to get around to painting the inserts but I've got them painted and the lenses put back on with sealant. I've got to use some sanding to restore the outer lens and solder in the new connections. I should have a few pictures up tomorrow and then the installation pictures sometime next week.

bay_wolf UPDATE:

It's been a while but the project was put on the back burner. I'm back to fixing them up and have gotten all of the electrical parts done. I am now on the stage of painting the inserts again as I've messed them up a few times. A great tip for anyone painting plastic is that the yellow can oven cleaner (high fumes and heavy duty) will remove paint off of the plastic without harming it. Just spray it on and let it sit for 24 hours. I'm hoping to have them painted by early next week. On to the pictures:

During my attempt to reinsert the projector into the housing I broke a metal part in half so I used some industrial strength Goop Adhesive to put it back together:



Here's some pictures of all the wires spliced, soldered, and routed around the case after installing the aftermarket HID kit:


This is a picture of the ballast attached to the bottom of the housing using velcro. The velcro is industrial strength and being held to the pieces using Goop Adhesive again since it's suppose to be one of the strongest glues.



Here's a final shot of both headlights without the inserts:

Will have an update within a week. I've got the inserts painted finally (couldn't due to winter weather) and have one of the headlights rewired and working! Sorry for the insanely late bump but figured I'll be posting some update pictures soon.
