Well last night at about 10pm I finished installing my new '07 Harley Headlights...what an adventure!
In the end it really wasnt that difficult. For one, I'm glad I checked out some of the threads on this project, because the cutting diagram that came with my new headlights was not very helpful at all. Also I worked my dremmel so hard that the chuck lock sheared off!
And of course those new lights look ridiculously nice, so i'm pleased. And for $160 on eBay with harness included, not a bad purchase.
Here are my tips for those of you who are embarking on this project...
1) Use a rotozip to cut the grille pannel, a REAL rotozip. I killed my dremmel using rotozip bits in it. (having a jigsaw on hand helps alot)
2) You definately need a dust mask....its not plastic, its fiberglass and I was itching all over by the time the project was done.
3) Either buy a new set of light plugs or be very cautious when unhooking the old lamps: the plastic is very brittle and I had a few little corners and tabs break off.
4) No matter how well you cut, its a tight fit....make sure you mask the very corner of the fender, its kinda in the way.
