Hahha as did I. I did 1 light a day. The second light was much easier when i knew what i was doing. But still a pain in the butt. I have people sending me PM's saying that they will mail me head lights if i'll crack them open and paint the lights for them =)

That looks so good. Damn, I'm going to do it too. Oh, btw, how much do oem headlights cost from Ford, ne1 kno (in case I mess up, lol)?

PS: The 05+ Focis are starting to look bad ass.

Might i recommend using a high temp paint for the headlights? because that housing will get very hot if you drive very far at night.... and low temp paint could crack and flake... just an idea....

mine is the liqued grey and im thinking about painting mine grey to match the car but im using red accent colors on it (black and red seats, silver and red petals ect.) and im thinking about making the tear part of the light red ( the little triangle shape on the top corners ) to match the rest but im afraid if i take em apart im going to screw em up lol.

Well been sporting them the longest out of the 05's on the site and thus far I have'n had any issues with peeling, bubbling, fading or anyhting of the sort. Still looks good after several months.

The only problems I had was trying to convince the wife to let me put my head lights in her oven, but they turned out good even she liked them. A++ on the tip thanks
