Ok, this is the ever popular clear lens mod for the '99 WJ the “Gritz”
way. First, I want to say that this is just how I did it and if you have a better way of doing parts or the whole process, then please let everyone on here know so I don't steer anyone wrong. I was also pretty limited on work area, equipment and expertise on this particular project, so just bear with me.
First I'll do a brief explanation of the process and purpose and then give a parts list and get started with the write up. I tried taking as many detailed pictures as I could, but most are not necessary because this mod is very simple. If anyone needs extra info, let me know.
I really wanted to do this mod because my headlights were looking really gross and I really like the look of the clear lenses up front. I had seen where other people had done this to their Jeeps and really liked it, so kudos to whoever thought of this first. I wet sanded the whole lens as well to smooth it out and hopefully get the headlights back to newish looking (more on this idea later).
You will need the following: (assuming you are going to follow my instructions)
-Waterproof sand paper (600, 1000, and 2000 grit)
-Blue masking tape (painter's tape) or equivalent
-Plastic grocery sacks (butcher's paper, or newspaper will also work fine)
-Permatex Spray 'n Seal or equivalent
-7mm nut driver or socket (with ratchet if using socket)
-Assorted torx head bits (I think a T-15 and T-20)
-Amber bulbs (2 turning signal and 4 marker)
-A cookie sheet
-Access to an oven
-A Flat tipped screwdriver
-And one Jeep with nasty looking headlights
Here are the before pictures.
