this is my first how to so take it easy on me. if there is anything i missed ,let me know so i can fix it.
i suggest you get a second pair of oem headlights to do this.
things youll need.:
masking tape, pencil, thin ruler, twelve 10mm leds for each headlight with the highest mcd ( youll find this in ebay), youll need twelve cuz youll be wiring them up in series of four. You wont be able to fit any more. speaker wire or similar wire, black paint, primer, sanding sheets, vht nightshade, dremmel with sanding tool, glue gun, 9v battery,
first thing to do is take apart your headlights. hopefully you know how to do this by now. if not shame on you.but seriously, if not ill try to help you with this.
pre heat your oven to 200 degrees and set to bake. remove all headlight wiring and bulbs, put headlights in and leave it there for about 10 minutes. if your unable to pry apart , put them back in and check again in 5 minutes. careful when your prying them apart cuz the glue will sag like a grilled cheese sandwich. if you get some glue on the housing its fine. you can remove it with goo gone. once you have them apart, unscrew the three bolts on the back of the headlight. sorry but dont know what size it is.
sand down the chrome housing till it looks like you sprayed primer all over it
have your drmmel ready, pencil and ruler.
lay the ruler on the straight lines right in front of where the bulb goes and draw multiple lines like so. these will help you in cutting the slots so their straight and face forward
then cut your slots and use the lines to keep em straight and even. i suggest you make the slots every inch.
once your done cutting the slots grap your paint supplies and get to painting
primer first then black paint. you can clearcoat if you want.
this part is optional but if you want, nightshade the signal housing. gives it a nice dark look when the bulb is on
grab ur leds and battery and test em to make sure their working. just tap em on, dont leave em on for too long
insert an led in each slot to make sure they fit
once your sure they fit apply a small bit of masking tape and attach like so
attach all the leds with the tape on the slots. * very important, make sure you tape the leds with the longest prong on the right side on each led*. grab your glue gun and apply at the base where the prongs touch the led.
once it has dried you can remove the tape.
and your housing should look like this
