I found that it was easier on the second light if I put it in 6min intervals, and broke the seal until the lights cooled down. fairly quick. I didnt have to keep sticking it in for 15mins at a time like I did with the first light...now to the paint.

hahah thanks Onyx. Wow I did one head light today and boy was that seal a pain in the butt. I wanted to die instead of take that light apart. Anyway, the RTV is drying and ill get to the second light tomorrow. Partly because it started to rain and i just dont feel like doing another light right now. Im excited about getting this project completed!!

Look ya'll I dont care about the fuzz so I chose this route, and I'm lazy so I said "F" the masking of the turning signal.

This would also look totally awesome with Sylvania Silverstar 3157 bulbs in the front turn lights - the bulbs look blue when they're not turned on, but light up amber, as is legal. I think a black car or dark grey would really look nice with no amber showing?

blight0x- that is one great looking '05. I really want to do this to mine, but I'm still afraid to take apart the headlights.
