i just did mine today, i used a small hair dryer....
pixars need update.. i can just take some when i get around to doing mine..
yeah pics need to be hosted hur
I used a heat gun to do mine. if you've never used one before I don't recommend it it's very easy to melt or burn the plastic. I'm not sure a hair dryer would be hot enough but I'd try that route, seems safe.
I went with a gloss finish
my driver side aftermarket headlight has stress cracks in it . was thinking of taking the lens from my stock and putting it on my aftermarket one ..... what you think ?
go for it, I've seen it done before.
Thanks for the guide!
I painted mine today and I think it looks so much better. My car is black so I think it really makes them blend in more.
i have an idea for that myself thought about doing it black. then thought of, i think an even better idea, if i can get the paint that is.... i thought "hey alot of ppl has black housing for headlights.... what can i do to do something diff.?" then it dawned on me... "Paint them the color of the car" anyone else think that would be an awesome idea?
of coarse... getting the paint code off the car and ordering a pint or so of the paint color. let me know ur thoughts...
Nice write up, did this with less then 700km on mine, neighbors thought i was nuts taking the headlights out of a brand new car lol
I would try it unless you have a color heavy in metallics.
