20 sets on different cars. All came out good except for the very first one, which were my own. You learn and improve.

Hard to believe they were done in an hour...

oven is 10 mins each. paint needs at LEAST 15 mins to dry. Or 30 mins total if you paint them separately. And then another 10 mins each to reseal.

That's a total of 55 mins of just waiting time.

Not saying you can't. Just tell me how you are

I traded my stock lights for BHLM lights, they are pretty decent, on the top corners of the high low beam light area are i guess burn marks from being in the oven too long, almost looks like headlight oxidation where it makes the lens blurry, but its not bad, and there are a some tiny paint chips but unnoticeable

Ive never really worked on vehicles until I started getting into trucks (Had an accord and civic previously). Ive found that Im better at mechanical work than cosmetic. With that being said, when I did my BHLM I broke a piece of the housing which I had to gorilla glue back on, I also didnt seal them correctly, and I messed up the paint. LOL. After all was said and done, it came out great and you had to look hard to see where it had broken.

If you did your satoshi I say go for the BHLM.

yea, work time. Painting was super fast because I just hung them with wire on my porch and sprayed away.

The other time was spent drinking some dos equis and eating some tacos.

I bought a spare set to try on and effed them up - left one in the oven for too long and melted the back housing. I really like the look of the BHLM but wouldn't try another set myself. Seems like a better idea to me letting someone on TW who's done a few take care of it.

People! If you rush it, it will show. If you place them together too soon, you've got a good chance of getting some fog,haze.

You have to allow the paint to "CURE". If not, have some hazy headlights.

I allow 2 days try time on my headlights to keep them Pristine. Well maybe, I just don't ever rush anything I do.... I mean anything
