Default headlight mod

i painted my headlights and corner lights using the how-to. it was easy once i got the lens separated but I had to leave the headlights in the oven for about 1 hour each and it was still a pain to get it off. the corner ones came apart after 5 minutes in the oven though.

The outer ring on your corners need to be painted. They're black right?

I painted my heads/corners DSG and the ring looks good not painted but I think when they're done with black they need to be painted.
