Color Matched Headlights

Well I pulled the gun yesterday and disassembled my headlights. Took me 5 hrs yesterday to just do one of them. Did the other one today and it took me 3 hrs. The hardest part was getting all the glue out of the headlight after you get it apart. That took the longest time.

Here are some pics of the progress.

Chrome bezel taken out of the lens:


Painted bezel:


Bezel back in lens:


Installed back in the truck:


The truck is filthy, I'm going to wash it tomorrow and get some better pics, but here's the whole front end:

Jesse, sending you an email back.

Lets just say a mud pit claimed it, I ripped of the job 2 dam so I replaced it with a job 1 and it got ripped of twice, so I just left it off.
