black-out headlight

I just finished my black out headlight mod on my truck, it turned out really good thanks to TW member Spencer Hong's great step by step. check out the pics...they're OK but it looks great in person....I recomend doing it!

Very nice job. I plan on doing this mod in the future when I have the time. I've heard that patience is the key when doing it. Did you have any problems sealing it back up? I think my main concern is getting moisture inside after I do it.

Well the silicone was really sticky so when I was re-installing them I pushed the 2 pieces together as good as I could then I put it back in the oven and pushed it completely together.. then just for precaution I put a strip of electrical tape around the entire thing.

Have you washed the truck or driven through rain yet? I thought mine were sealed till the first good rain storm.
