HOW TO [VIDEO]: DIY Headlight Retrofit Complete Guide!

Well someone requested a video on how to do retrofits so I figured I'd go out of my way to record and do the complete guide! Hope you guys enjoy it, please let me know what you think and ask any questions. I'm not very good at acting so don't be saying I look terrible or talk like a 2 year old haha anyways here is the first video of much more coming soon!

Here is what the final product will look like!

In your video you talk about posting a link but you didn't.

Alright sorry for the delay for anyone wanting to see the other videos, next part is baking headlights and I hate making videos with people around and there is always someone in the kitchen (my gf) yes I taught her right! Haha anyways I should be able to do it tomorrow, so stay tuned.

Also I have been shopping around and thinking of doing rgb halos, and multicolor demon eye mod so that will be exciting, and will be included in the how to.
