NO PICTURES GUYS IM SORRY..ATLEAST NOT NOW I DONT HAVE MY CAMERA WITH ME (i no i no lol):
This literally took me 15 minutes to do minutes taking the headlight off the car

Take headlights off the car.

Remove the 3 Rubber Covers and the rubber grommit that is located around the main bulb

Place them on a baking pan covered with a cloth

Pre-Heat Your Stove to 210F

Put it the oven and leave for 10 minutes.

Immediatly pry the headlight from the sides trying not to the let the glue cool back down

When prying with a screwdriver the glue will get all over it just as a heads up

Once the headlight is open use a screwdriver to remove the two screws at the bottom of the plastic front cover

The (chrome) piece should come off easily

__________________________________________________ ____________

Buy a flat black paint such as Krylon and a decent clear coat

Spray the pieces with about 2 coats of paint and how ever many clear coats. When I spary the clear down i can go for as long as i like.

Let it dry for a couple of hours-I would recommend 5-6
Do this preferably on a Sunday lol

Replace the two screws forthe newly sprayed piece back onto the faceplace..

Remove all excess glue from before..DONT TRY TO REUSE THE GLUE!

Go out and buy a really good epoxy or use OEM glue..(WILL HAVE THIS UP AT A LATER TIME)

Let te glue dry while having the headlight clamped together to make sure the glue holds and there are no breaks/leaks




CLEARING THE CORNER:

Take a small flathead and just push it up from the bottom

Should come up fairly easy just becareful and take your time


Bring it back ol skool
