tried to do the harley headlight mod. wasnt able to complete

I spent 4 hours on one headlight doing the oven method.

got about half of it apart and cant take trying to pry it apart anymore. its insane.



SO im looking for a set of used harley headlights. I dont really want to spend 500 on new headlights that are blacked out. so im looking to see if anyone has any used ones.


Im honestly not even sure if I can get the headlight back together I took apart.

There was a thread with a guy willing to do them for you for a fee not to long ago. Maybe you could search for it and see if he's still doing it.

yes I kept them warm.

well i spent a long time on mine. and just ended up doing more damage to the headlight then It was worth. It really sux i spent so much time for nothing. but Im in the process of putting the headlight back together .

Unless u have some experience I dont recommend this method to anyone. I have a friend that did it as well. you will spend about 4 hours taking each headlight apart. if your lucky. I just dont have the time or patience .
