i was selling my brand new OEM (style) headlights for the black housing Harley headlights. Well i took one out of the box and noticed some rattling on the inside. So long story short i decided not to sell possible broken headlights to someone. So figuring i would chuck them, i mind as well give this a shot. I dont know how many people have done this, or if there is a write up. but figured i would share....
Heres what i started with:
Took it apart. Can be done carefully and with two flathead screwdrivers. Someone told be i could of heated it in the oven, but i wasnt sure and didnt want to melt the plastic. The lens seems thin:
4 screws to take out. 2 here on the amber, and 2 around the housing on the plastic/chrome
Sanded, washed and rinsed. First coat, just to see how it would hold:
Between 2nd and 3rd coats:
All back together:
