Then came the fun parts....
I decided to rip my headlights apart and paint them black and also install some custom made Halo's out of flexible side emitting LED strips.
I nearly destroyed the lights getting them apart. Apparently the 2008 and newer models used a newer glue, then the 05-07 and its a ***** to get apart. I tried the oven, didn't work. Ended up using a heat gun, which was melting stuff, and still the glue was not letting go. I finally got them apart, but the seam was pretty badly damaged.
I went with my own Side Emitting LED Strip rather than buying Oracle halos. Because I was able to get 16ft of this stuff for around $60. When Oracle wants to charge over $200 for their rings. And I wasn't paying that price for some LED lights.
I decided to paint in the turn signal area, and also painted my side marker, but I taped off and left that little rectangle square so the side marker was still visible.
These strips are VERY bright. Easily Visible on a full sunny day. Much much brighter than those off brand Ebay and Spyder Headlights with the built in halos that you can hardly see.
I was pretty happy how they turned out. The website said the strips were Pure white to Cool White. But they turned out looking more blue than I expected. Maybe because the black headlights. They did however fog up on me two days after. But it worked itself out, and hasn't fogged up since.
