Its gonna look great with the other headlight mod I am gonna do, that I am keeping a secret. I have most of my parts to do the mods, I am still waiting for my load resistor harness (its on Backorder ) that is gonna keep the bulb out warning off. So now its looking like next weekend. I have test fitted all of my parts on my lab rat headlight, so it shouldn't take me too long when my parts get here.

I am just as anxious as y'all. I am sorry it has taken me this long, I had no idea it was gonna take this long to just get the parts.

No need to apologize at all. You are doing some innovative stuff and it takes time. I cant wait to see the final result.

Okay. I live in North Austin, close to Cedar Park. But we can meet up somewhere down there.

In for updates. I was gonna try and tackle my own retro, but now I'm thinking otherwise because of the difficulty opening and resealing the headlights!

I remember reading an active member writing a little bit about taking them apart. I think he had to bake his multiple times before he got the housing off. 250 for 10 minutes I think

So did you actually open them and niteshade the plastic inside, or is the niteshade on the headlight lens?

If you did open them, did you use a similar method to open them?
