Um, this is like showing 50 million car parts on the ground in a picture, and a picture of a finished car next ... with no steps in between.

DIY - Fail

I went out and bought a heat gun, a screw, and some silicone. I waited 3 hours and checked my computer desk, my amber inserts and my silicone were there waiting for me as pictured above. After another 4 hours of waiting, everything disappeared and my headlight corners were clear.

Easiest DIY ever, I suggest it to everyone!

I almost forgot one step. The magic that makes this DIY work is dropping some acid prior to going out and venturing into Home Depot for supplies. Turns out I also bought 2 grand worth of lumber and 6 hours later I had a new deck and a new shed in my backyard.

Geesh, Cant you read?

You screw the Heatgun, then silicone some negative to said Heatgun. Then and only then, do your headlights become clear and aim around corners.
