Angry im screwed.....

Today i decided to do the headlight mod.... i got my headlights out which wasnt to bad, i spent about two hours getting them separated in the oven and taping them up was about to paint and decided to retape something and what do you know the masking tape i used pulled up all the silver reflective stuff on the inside of my headlights....so now i have headlights in pieces and now look even worse than before with no reflective surface so instead of a nice cheep mod I am left with two shitty looking (non painted) headlights......

lol i bet you taped within the contour of the blinker "circle". many people do that. next time tape across from one edge to the other without following the indented round contour.


certifit has new headlights for 30ish a piece with new adjusters included.

Closest certifit is in kc and with no shipping it would cost more in gas then the lights.

If your headlights are in mint condition I will take them off your hands. I don't need chrome on them, in fact - I take the chrome off on purpose. I am worried about the condition of the lenses and any damage.
