    Two years ago I purchased my retro fit kit and installed it into some cheap ebay housings because i didnt want to mess up my OEMs. Well its time to redo them INTO MY OEM HOUSINGS!

    why?

    well they're not adjusted just right, (yes thats an easy fix) but the passenger one loosened up some and is a few degrees crooked, also the housings arent sealed 100% i guess, idk how because i cleaned the channels out and used the urethane from the retrofitsource. Also now i think the clear lens on the cheap ebay units are starting to peel off.

    I currently live on Base in Tucson, I dont have an oven in my dorm room, if anyone out there could help out a fellow tacoma owner Id greatly appreciate it. Ill buy you the beer or food or whatever. It shouldnt take longer than a few hours id hope, I could even bring my OEM units and heat them up, split them apart and then do the BHLM and stuff on my own time at the dorms as well as clean out as much of the old sealant, then when thats all ready bring over the truck with the retros, split them and install into the fresh OEM ones

    You're more than welcome to use my oven. I work this weekend though, have to be to work by 1400. PM me if you want a # or directions.

    I know absolutely jack about retrofits though, so I'm only useful for my oven.
