Headlight Mod

Has anyone taken apart their AU headlights and painted the silver non reflective insert. How hard is it, and anyone in Brissie done it so I can have a look at it?

Re: Headlight Mod

Casper - another plug! But a worthy one. lol

AU Lover - If you do go ahead with this, can you please take photos of each stage (I forgot to do it), and send them to jc@aufalcon.com Thanks.

It is very worthwhile doing, BTW. Makes the front look heaps better. Here's a couple of shots of the finished product:

Re: Headlight Mod

You don't need to heat the XE ones - they're held together with clips. So, in theory, you could do it to an XE, though the only time I pulled my XE lights apart, I smashed the glass lens.
