FS: Halogen Headlights

http://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/pts/3225857579.html

If any e90 Post brethren would like them $50 bucks off my asking just need to get rid of them. I live in Graham and work starting at 1pm daily in South Tacoma so anywhere between there and after 11am will be fine.

253-861-3583

Thanks Taran

No offense, but i'm surprised anyone bought those rims. You should let us experiment on your headlights!

lol ok. Wasn't sure if you chromed those things out or not. If no one buys those headlights, you should try baking them. A ton of us want to bake open our headlights but are too scared to try it on our own. lol If one of us can successfully do it, the possibilities would be endless! LED angels, painted reflectors...

I'm not so fond of chrome, it gets changed to black or color matched within a week the cars in my hands. I want to try a DIY of one heat gun and the other baking, this way if your wife's or mothers won't let you "ruin" their kitchens we can stay in our garages and do it with a heat gun. I've baked my Mercedes ML's headlights open no problem so these shouldn't be much different but you lot will be informed first or on my YouTube page.

Never used heat gun but baked at 250 degrees for 10 mins, removed all bulbs and harness as I could, put on a cookie tray just in case they melt and 10 later I put a flat head screw driver to them and they came off with a little force. Main thing is to wear long sleeves and oven mitts cuz you have to do it when the glue is warm and pliable.

A post i read in the Cosmetics and Lighting section said bake 130 degrees for 20 minutes then go around with a heat gun, with a suction cup attached to the lens, and finish the separation. i vote for a DIY video!

I ended up just cutting the face off my LCI Halogens, blacked them out, and just glued them back together... i have multiple videos to put together a DIY, just need to sit down and edit it before i post it.

Btw, the best suction cup to use in this sense is to get one from Lovers (yeah, the sex store)... these things can hold up a 200lb person, they can sure as hell pry apart a headlight! ^__^

lol not that i'm (or my woman) 200lbs, that's just what the box says. haha.

Anyway though, i think the inputs above were implying that a few of us get together and all have a go at pulling them apart so that we all know the procedure involved with it.

I don't mind, I own businesses in South Tacoma so I'm occupied everyday throughout the evening there so, if you lot want they're still in the boot of the car and have at it. It only helps us all further educate us.
