The final product looks pretty sweet, but that looks like a lot of work though. I'll have to think about that one.

Put it back in over to pop lense. Then pull all old silocone out and put real thick beat in housing once cleared. Pushtogether and tape/ratched strap together. Once dry put real nice bead around whole houseing where lense is and it wont leak at all.

Not to much work. Hardest part is gettin those stupid bolts from bottom of car out. As long as u clear all old silicone once popped its atctually easy.

Using rubber butyl is much easier than silicon, gives a much better end result too

has anyone tried it yet?
I want to paint my housing black or maybe dark blue in the style of TI lights. It costs far too much to buy lights.

I also tried a Turtle Wax restore kit to mixed results. Please ignore the rest of my dirty, beat-up car.
