Gooty's Retrofit Build

So i am selling my 1st generation projectors and building a pair of retrofits. I got an extra set of stock headlights for $30 locally couldnt of passed it up.

https://www.yourcobalt.com/forums/sal...hids-sale.html

i began my build today by taking the lens off by putting the housings in the oven. I found that 210 degrees for 12 minutes worked the best for heating up the adhesive. I then took the plastic pieces and used waterproof or very fine sandpaper to scratch up or rough up the plastic so that the primer would adhere. Taped up the headlights and used rust-oleum plastic primer to ensure a good finish with the paint for the headlights do the job right the first time never do it again. Buying the retrofits later this week or after someone buys my projectors. Tell me what you think so far!











painting the plastics tomorrow with krylon fusion satin black will update with pictures tomorrow
