Oh, and i dont know how i missed your thread, but use a heatgun to remove teh old sealant. Just go with a flathead to scrape it out.

and i HIGHLY recommend that you get some Nissan Butyl headlight sealant to reseal your headlights. You only need one roll, one roll is enough to do at least 3 sets of headlights.

Nothing worse than having your headlights complete, then having to take them apart again to reseal it due to fogging.

edit- You should also color mod your tsx projectors while theyre still out. I think you use some washers to space the lense further away. its on HID Planet somewhere.

I heard about the Nissan sealant, I will definitely go with that then. and Color mod huh? I will search for it on HID planet.

Thanks for the tips man, really appreciate it.

UPDATE 5/27/2009

I just ordered my 6000K D2S bulbs and AMP to D2S adapter cables from "The Retrofit Source". Once I get my stuffs I can then see how far the bulb and cable stick out so I can modify the back cover to fit (That really shouldn't take that long). I'm going to radio shack today to pic out my LED's. The last thing I need is the OEM front clear cover. If I cant find a doner set this week I'm just going to hack my own!

......almost finished!!!!!!!!!!!!!

like another set of 05-07 headlights I can hack apart to get the clear covers from. With my car, I try not to damage the stock parts. I've saved every stock part I've taken off. I'd rather not mess with my own headlights but it looks like I might have to.

^ agreed.

New bulbs and adapter cables will be here Friday. The Retrofit Source has amazing customer service. Matt refunded me .32 cents for a miscalculation in 3 day shipping to me. Also I called them this past Sunday before memorial day and Matt returned my call! ON SUNDAY! Answered my questions and gave me advice.
