    Post pictures right away...If you're doing a retrofit, post pictures of the process...Everyone else puts too many words in their explanation of headlight fixes.

    did you put the painted piece in the over for a little bit to cure first? I have always done that to prevent the fumes from making a haze on the lens part.

    DONE! I also recommend to check for caking on the plastic lens. Mine was so i used left over of a 3M lens repair kit to fix that problem...hence the blue tape.

    I also recommend Meguiar's PLASTX. This product is amazing

    So here she is after the re-install and after a little wash. Sorry for the delay in pics but I git a little busy yesterday afternoon.

    Seeing as this was my first DIY mod, besides painting the lower center of the bumper to match, I was SUPER pleased at how it came out and that nothing turned into a puddle of plastic;).

    I also like how it looks against the dersert sand color,

    Watcha guys think?
