Wait is it Mike? Or Mark? Or Matt? Can't figure it out, never met him, never shows up at meets. Kid actually just backed out of the tech day a few minutes ago as a matter of fact.

Trizzuth is who I'm talking about.

Hey guys,

Anybody replaced angel eyes on facelift headlights before? I'd rather not spend hundreds on an entire assembly again, but my old halos are fading, yellow, and some spots on them are completely out.

I've never heated them to take them apart, and what concerns me is re-sealing them. Thanks for any help!

Dave is back..'and he's really good at them

Putting the whole headlight into an oven rather than using a heatgun is key

I can't believe I'm still waiting for mine and I definitely paid more than that!

Is it an optical illusion or do the tailpipes on the passenger side not stick out as much as the driver side ones?

Lol cancel your order and get this one. It took 2 weeks to arrive from China, painted. Not too inclined to see if tips are unequally aligned at the moment lol.

Yea I've done mine a couple times, fairly simple. Let me know what you want to do, I'll help you out. Shouldn't take more then a couple hours...


EDIT: do you need me to do them for you or are you just looking for tips?

Thanks Russo! If it's something you could actually do for me that would be great. I'm going away late next week but maybe sometime mid-May?

Ken, thanks to you as well for your suggestion too. If Dave is closer that Russo, I might have to look him up.
