    Did you dig all the sealant out of the black half or did you just add a bit of new sealant and reassemble?

    Yes, I removed all the old sealant. Heat gun, screwdriver, and some elbow grease. Cleaning It out lets the new bead of sealant lay perfect and the front clear lens seal nice into the channel.

    Whatever you do- don't touch the inside of the clear lens!!! Use compressed air to blow it out right before resealing it back together. Looking good! What paint are you using?

    I have two sets. Ill be selling both of them with trade in for buyers current lights so I can keep doin sets. The more i do the easier it gets. Small investment in parts and a lot of labor involved

    I honestly don't know. It's hard to base the price off second gens when the lights are cheap and avalible. Our lights are 1500 bucks for the set new. I guess I just need to ask around and feel it out. im into parts alone about 30-40. Rubber is 20'ish and two cans of paint are 12 bucks.
