HID & Blacked out headlights pics

I must say, the glue on these headlights was crazy strong, i baked them longer than ive ever had to before but got them open, painted, and sealed.

The HIDs look fantastic, and easy purchase, i went with the 6000k. I just had to figure out which wires were the low beams and highs but turned out great.

I first baked at 235 as ive done for other headlights for 7 min, but it dodnt soften the glue. I then baked at 275 for 10 min increments and only got 1/3 of the glue off at a time before the rest of the headlight glue was dry. so after 3 times in the oven the headlight was free. I just used a scotch bright pad to scuff the chrome housing, removed the amber turn signal lense, used a regular gray primer on the chrome and a flat black spray paint (no specific brand). I also used a regular gloss black on the amber lense (just be careful not to "cake" on the coats. one coat each side will do it. You dont have to use a niteshades paint on this (or tailights) niteshades is just a little more forgiving if you do thick coats, but a light 1 coat of regular paint still lets plenty of light through the amber lense.
