I am going to try this soon. I read somewhere else about putting the tape on your clothes, pulling it off, then putting it on the lights. This lessens the "stickyness".

Not incredibly cheap, but if you destroy your chrome, this will help you start over.

I'd still like to see the lights done in yellow. I think it'd be really exotic looking, especially if you use color match paint...

Do I need krylon fusion for this or just regular krylon and what kind of silicone did you use?

Krylon Fusion sticks well to plastic so you will likely want to get that.


Any kind of silicone that is made for bonding plastics, and is water tight, should work. You want something that won't be temperature sensitive as well. You could probably even use bathtub silicone for the job.

Just finshed this mod. I ended up setting the oven to 220 and leaving the headlights in for a good 20 mins, I came to the conclusion you could leave your headlights in for awhile at 220 and not really half to worry. I just bought outdoor heat syclone (used for outdoor lighting)

The headlights turned out well however I will probable redo the units when I get some HID and Angel eyes. I miss a finger print on the drivers side light and its going to drive me crazy knowing its there. While doing that I will do the turn signals, anyone ever do there fog lights?
