AU Headlight Mod

Hi fella's, has anyone actually pulled their headlights apart to paint the bezel to make em look like the T series? I've already checked out the workshop article at but have one problem. The headlights are too big for my oven, which I assume is a standard size. To do it I would have to leave the door open. Is this going to work? or is there another option available to the average household? Help needed. Thanks guy's

Re: AU Headlight Mod

I did it ages ago without putting them in the oven, I did it with a stanley knife cutting the sealer, it was a painstaking job but the result was the same. So it can be done ......

Re: AU Headlight Mod

You must have a small oven, 1 headlight would easilly fit into any oven I have had.
Sure oyu cant pull out the racks to fit them?
Either that or I know someone who is a professional plastics welder who can do it for $200 for the pair!

Re: AU Headlight Mod

youd actually be surprised shane, they are VERY deceiving in size, they didnt fit in mine properly

from memory JC left the door ajar but put a towel over the opening to help keep the heat in

could be wrong but
