    I want to do the BLHM but am afraid of screwing up my stock lights also. I'm going to buy a spare set to mess with and sell the stockers off if the mod works out. I figure in the end, I'll come out even.

    That is why we "pre-burn." Once they are dry (15-20 mins), I put them back in the oven at 250 degrees ON for 5 mins. This will burn off any chemicals that would be given off as a gas.

    Does it matter how long the headlight assembly is left apart? Does the adhesive lose it's integrity after a day or so or do the headlights seal up regardless of how long you leave the assebly apart?

    Thanks. I'm going to attempt mine over Labor Day weekend (I'm leaning towards painting them white to match the truck though). They won't be apart nearly 6 months but maybe a week.

    Thanks to Viet's write up it went smooth. Except that i forgot to clean in side one of the lens, so I will have to reopen it.

    Holy shit man, when people say to take your time and make sure to let them dry before putting them back together, you take it to another level! ;)
