    Are you referring to the BHLM (black head light mod)? Or are you painting the lens of your headlights?

    just read and follow the directions in the BHLM thread exactly and you shouldn't have any problems. Some people on here have told me to turn the oven OFF and let the headlights "cook" and pull them out when you can touch the headlights. Or until they start to hurt after a while.
