    After looking at the numerous photos of all the trucks on here with the BHLM, I am very eager to have it done myself. However, I don't have a whole lot of time as I am constantly busy with school, work, homework, and sleep. Also, I am not very confident in my craftsmanship of the idea, albeit it seems to be a fairly easy mod amongst the members.

    Having said that, does anybody on here offer their services to do the BHLM? If so, how much??

    Ive never done one for anyone else.. but I did mine. It was really simple, dont get me wrong I was super nervous about sicking my lights in the oven. All and all it only took about a hour to do it. You can do it yourself with no problem and only a flathead and phillips screwdriver (once you remove the headlights of course)

    1. preheat the oven to 225
    2. place lights in oven on wooden board (remove bulbs and rubber gaskets)
    3. stick entire assembly in oven on board
    4. wait about 12 or 14 minute... I was sweating bullets and watching the lights the whole time. haha.
    5. remove lights and get to work.
    6. there are about 4 or 5 tabs you will need to loosen while you are peeling the housing apart from the assembly.
    7. there are a few screws connecting the part you want to paint to the back of the assembly you need to remove. after that your pretty much home free.

    just take your time and dont rush.. all and all it only took me about a hour to do it.


    if you dont feel confident about it still. you can ship them to me and I'll do it for you... you pay shipping both ways.

    Send me ur lights n ill do it. Lol. But no really its not that hard I was skeptical at first also to stick my headlights in the oven but it wasn't bad at all. Actually pretty easy. Do it as a weekend project where u wont need ur truck unless its ur daily driver. Do it in the evening paint em n let em sit overnight then assemble em n r in.

    I want to do the same, but I just can't get myself to put a set on the overn and have them cook, then be screwed out of a few hundred bucks that I would have to put out for new ones. They do look nice when done I will say.

    I was skeptical about putting them in the oven, but from what everyone says on here, it turns out great. I'm just worried about f'ning something up one way or another... maybe ill have to try it whenI get some time. I frickin love the look of em!

    Obviously, it is important to take your time and pay attention to detail when doing this. Out of the whole process, is there a general consensus on the most "pain in the ass" step of the mod? That way, I know to pay particular attention and care to such.

    i felt the biggest issue with the mod was actually sticking my assembly in the oven. I was super nervous about it. when I finished the first light, the second was a freakin breeze. pm me if you have any issues. I hook you up with my number so I can be moral support. haha
