    So I want to try the BHLM out but before I do I was wondering what people have experienced as a result of doing it. For instance, one person mentioned that they had condensation build up in one light. So for those of you that have done this mod, what have you experienced and what would you suggest doing in order to secure a sucessful, nice looking mod?
    On a seperate note, I am looking to put a chip in my taco. Any suggestions?

    Well the condensation build up would be from not being sealed correctly. I have not tried this mod yet but plan to in the future. As far a chips, i haven't got the slightest idea. Im sure someone who has experience with chips will tune in.

    Home advice, and dont leave it on while the lights are in there.....

    when time is up and you take them out of the oven a pair of mechanics gloves are nice to have on.

    So you're saying get oven to temp then turn it off when the lights are placed in? How hard was it to sand the crome down? Can you give me a run down of what all you did?
