Sure. This is my preferred method, if done correctly the wires are almost invisible and I prefer to rely on a steel wire than some epoxy, especially with the vibrations the rings will see.

Sorry, just saw this. The rings are Orion V2 which were modded to a U-shape and frosted.

For optimal results find the best headlight builder for your project and ship the lights to them, unless you just happen to be local to a quality craftsman then it will be best to have the light remotely built.

Wrestled with these bad boys last night and finally popped them off for the first time! Not as difficult as you would expect it to be based on the horror stories of how hard e90 LCI headlights are to get a part. It's just like anything else, if you take your time, move slow and be patient, it isn't bad at all.

I recommend wearing gloves and using a Dremel first to cut the first lip off, then pry them open little by little with a flathead screwdriver while cutting through the excess Permaseal with a razor blade. Once you see how the headlights are held together, it's pretty self-explanatory how to proceed.

I have to say I was unsure for a while if I was going to take this DIY on. Needless to say, I wish I had tackled it sooner! I'll keep you posted!
