search the forum and use the DIY's to remove your lights. once you have your lights off. cover everything with painters tape and newspaper. spray generously but not so much that it starts dripping. If you have doubts practice on a water bottle to know how much or how close to spray. use only 1 coat let it dry for about 2-3 hours, put everything back together and your done. If you have fog lights you can spray that too while your at it!




Here are some pic of the finish product! The car is a little dirty thanks to the damn snow.
cool, i'll get some tomorrow! i already know how 2 get inside the headlights tho. thanx

i have halogen low beams does anyone see a problem with doing both high and low bowls in yellow?
possibly just the high beams in blue?
its a stretch but both in blue?

will it look stupid because my car isnt heavily modded yet?

also i just painted inserts white. looks sic to me. might change ur opinion.


excuse the dirt please. nasty weather.

never seen anyone do all 4 bowls, i'm sure you'd b one of the first. I don't think its actually enough to affect the light coming out, i say go 4 it! all blue or all yellow yellow + blue would look nasty, and if u did blackout high beams and yellow regulars u would probibly need other accents. all yellow could look really hot tho.
