    The headlights are already chromed plastic... so what's the mod, just pulling out the reflectors? :confused:

    yeah but dont you have top put the headlight in the oven to get it open and again to put it back together. When I have a write up with pics, makes the process go alot smoother.

    Saw some thread a while back where a dude just took the bulbs out of the reflector-lensed areas, stuck a pick in there to dislodge the reflectors onto their sides, and cut 'em up with little dykes through the same access.

    Honestly, I think it'd be easier to just cook and re-seal the fuckers. It's not that hard.
