Well, the "botched" BHLM Headlamps I bought of Ebay are almost totally redone now. Took them apart and stripped the cheap black paint that was on there off with Acetone. Repainted with Brownell's Matte Black Aluma-Hyde II spray paint. They look good now and I have both back together and sealed with silicone. Next step, get the 18K miles of tiny road specks off of the lamp lenses.
Has anyone ever attempted this with the Tacoma headlamps? Since I only have these (2) lamps to do I got the Permatex kit that has the (4) grades of fine sandpaer to use along with some liquid polish. I tried the polish alone but the specks remained and will have to be sanded off of there.
So in a few hours from now I hit the back yard with water hose and the lamp assys. for some serious hand action on them. This is going to be messy but hopefully in the end will be worth it for me to have new looking lenses. Here is a pix of what they look like now.
