Myke used to say if you pay shipping both ways and then some he would do it, i do not know if he is still doing that but wont hurt to ask. doin this is much much cheaper than aftermarket, just takes time

Shoot, if I can retro fit projectors into the headlights and paint them as well, then this is a piece of cake! I was scared at first but I bit it and now it looks so nice! I need to upload some pics on here. I say go for it as well.

What type of paint do you guys suggest? a high gloss paint in a spray can (for autmotive purposes). Will this void warranty? I might tackle this with my dad, he is more fo a tech then I will ever be

I think a matte finish looks better than high gloss for this mod. I did mine a few years ago using rattle can "bumper black" and they still look good.

It looks good with the red paint. I'm more into chrome for my truck though.

Leave it in longer but dont leave it it for a solid hour straight. Put it in for 10 minutes then pull it out for a couple then repeat. When you pull it out try to get it apart.

I was doing it in 5 minute intervals; I ended up taking it out and bumping the oven temp up to 185F, and at that temp it took 30 mins. I guess my oven is pretty weak lol. For those who are scared of breaking something, just don't force anything and take it slow.
