are they aftermarket headlights or did you take them apart and paint the housing??..im blacking out my whole car and i dont want the bright chrome headlights to stick out like a sore thumb... but im kinda afraid to take them apart, cuz i'll screw it up somehow..lol
And yeah, I took them apart. Man it took like 8 hrs to do it, maybe 9. It took maybe 30 minutes to get them out the car, 5 hrs to heat and pry apart, 1 hr to scuff and paint and reseal with silicone (after taking all the old stuff out). And another 2 hrs to dry and install.
There really isn't a way you can mess them up, just make sure you wear surgical gloves, because those grubby hand prints with silcone drys quick and lmost impossible to get out...I just have a couple streaks on the inside.
