    So im on the fence on doing this mod on my factory headlights... my question is how long should you wait before putting the lense back on the housing?? i have read that if you dont let it dry completely it will fog the lenses. are there any pointers any of you guys have for me before i do this?? im not trying to mess up my factory lights!

    One thing i know... Don't TOUCH the chrome on the housing... If you're not painting it black don't touch it.. If you try to wipe of finger prints be careful what you use.. that chrome comes off EASY!!!

    did mine yesterday after much debate, put last coat on around 3:00 and installed the lense at 6:00, finshed off with silcone. No problems chipping or anything thus far, installed this morning after silcone had time to dry no problems yet

    It's a scary mod until you do it and then you wonder why you didn't do it sooner. Funny, that's exactly where I stand now with the Satoshi mod.
