ah so THIS is why you're in a hurry for the stickers

looks great so far! they remind me of the Grand Canyon II headlights.

Were the aftermarket lights sealed with butyl rubber (or something that actually softens with heat)? The OEM HID housings are a PITA to separate but my guess is the aftermarket ones are sealed differently.

Yes this would be why

Funny you should mention it, because I have been debating whether or not I want to tint the lens yellow over the high beam.

These ones are a lot easier to open! The sealant is actually pliable before it is even heated. Popping them in the oven makes them come right apart!

Haha! Sorry, but no! I don't have them finished yet. I have the first one opened and painted. I just opened the second and I am hoping to get the taping and maybe the sanding finished tonight. It will be another couple days until I am finished! Today I have been watching my two kids and their two cousins, so progress is slow


In the mean time how about one of my favorite pics!

So is there an Omelet project fan club page or something around here?

Seriously, looks awesome man - can't wait to see the final results! Which headlights are those that you picked up? All I can seem to find are the ones with all the LED's and weird diamond cut housings...
