Hey everyone .. I've been wanting to do this for a while. This is def one of the best visual mods you can to do for the T. Really changes the look of the front end. I live southwest AZ and I havent seen anyone else with this mod so it really sets u apart.

After doing this I have a few suggestions for anyone considering.
1. Use black gasket maker (I wasnt thinking about it and I used blue - not noticeable but its there)
2. I sanded the housing but there are a few areas it is almost impossible to do a decent job sanding .. so if I was to do it again I wouldn't sand it
3. I got the paint matched ($18.50 at a local paint store .. If anyone wants to know Galaxy black color is called G10 .. its on the door frame sticker) well it looks good but you cant tell through the lense that is matched .. so I would suggest spending a few less dollars and use a generic flat or gloss black
4. One 4oz can of spray was exactly the right amount of paint .. so try not waste any
5. The orginal directions uses 2 tubes of gasket maker but I ended using 3 (which almost wasnt enough)
6. 300 degrees for ten minutes worked awesome for me .. the gasket just peeled right off

Thats all I could think of. I hope I helped someone.

I want to try this mod, but I am too worried that I am going to be the one person that F's up and won't have working headlights.

I was nervous baking my headlights but nothing happened. I'm just waiting for the paint to cure now. I just decided to paint the reflectors instead of VHT them. I may have to wet sand them after this coat I think I got a little ambitious and it started to run a little bit on the reflectors.

If you didn't have to wet sand the reflectors, how much downtime would you estimate for the entire project?

Expect to spend pretty much an entire day. I'm still not done. I still have to put them back together. Its not that difficult though. Just time consuming. Getting the light and housing apart didn't nearly take as long as I thought it would. I got it off in like 5 minutes. Just make sure its nice and warm otherwise you have to stick it back in there and soften up the gasket. I had to with my first one. The second one was a breeze. Sanding the chrome off is the time consuming and crappy part. Some guys dont do that apparently though so that would save some time. Most the time is spent waiting for the paint to dry though.

Did everyone actually wait 24hrs after painting to put them back together and then ANOTHER 24hrs after putting them back together to install them again?

Did you get it to work? I bought a set today in Buy/Sell so I wouldn't have any down time. After that, I am going to polish up the stock lamps and put them up for sale.

Nice! I can't wait to work on mine.
Let me know if you need help. I'm sure you don't, but if do I can stop over. Well except this weekend I'm going to the Grand Canyon.

The only problem I am having is that I am laughing so hard at some of the stuff in this thread that I am shaking the bed and managed to wake up my wife who wants to know what the heck is going on as it is 1:30AM EST I'll just blame it on Loraine that milkaholic in the morning :domohit:
