I am still on the fence about it. I like the way it makes the remaining chrome in the headlights stands out, but I like the blacked out look as well.

lol, alright, alright...I'll do it this weekend.

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.

Looks awesome, I'm dying to paint my headlights... I just don't have the motivation to put them in the oven.

And congrats on the baby as well!
