This may have been asked but there's 16 pages in this thread lol. Has anyone done this with plastidip? I've got like 3 extra cans that would make this mod even cheaper for me...

not sure 190 worked for my 04 perfectly, be careful with long exposure in that heat it might cause hazing.

I'm jealous haha only thing I was unsure about is the fact that the headlights won't match the fogs. Also how much light they will put on the road

i seperated mine with a heatgun. i didnt do any painting like what this thread is about i did a retrofit but step one is still the same. i have a pretty good industrial quality heat gun and a few minutes of working it around the edges of the housing and some gentle prying was all it took. some guys prefer the oven method to avoid overheating one area of the seam relative to another, you wont have problems as long as you're careful.
