So many moons ago I took these headlights apart.
to do that, is NO EASY BRO.
Here is a pic of all the parts once opened. . what might not be clear is on the middle piece, the amber piece snaps over it. it has a trapezoid shape where the light shines thru. you need to put something in that void or else you'll have raw bulb shining thru, so amner bulb is required for sure.
to open them: not easy, pain in the ****ing ass!
230 degrees for about 13 14 minutes and lots of patience. may start to come apart, then cools, back in the oven again. you'll need some leather gloves.
I took out every chisel, scraper, screwdriver, plastic pry bar, I had in tool box and brought in the kitchen. you have to start off gently and with something rather thin. you start at the end away from the amber. there are 4 locating pin like things. you can start near one of those. so you heat it for 13-14 minutes at 230. get some good leather gloves, no holes to handle the freaking light. it ****ing hot and its big. also be careful not to break the mounts. they stick out, you are trying to apply pressure to the pry tool, i used a towel kind of trying to make sure the mount wasnt unsupported or covered. you may even need 2 towels on the table. ok so you first need to start prying with something thin. you have to kind of break the seal. youy can start to see the edges seperate. so you do that for a few inches, then you get the next size tool. now remember, as you try to pry if you twist too hard, the tool digs into the bottom black part. that can be easily chewed up by the tool you are using. so there is no exact science here. my very first one went easy oner I broke the initial seal. I have done 5 more since then, none have been that easy. 3 of them required a cool down then a complete re-heat. like leftovers. so you work that one end, those two corners. once you get it to start, you progressively use a bigger tool or more pressure to get the seperation moving along. Like I said, it may taker to long and you need a reheat. so when you got an inch or so back there you can start pulling the halves apart. you may need to use a tool to loosen glue as you go. once you have a few inches and cang et your fingers in the opening, add more force to pull them apart. the amber end is last, and it is a bit more difficult to seperate that end. lots of glue and the parts just fit together deeper.
So I finally got around to painting the amber parts. primed. color. clear. then nightshades on the inside to tone down the amber a bit.
so here it is mocked up.....
with the lens on it.
so everything is painted except the vertical lined areas. i didnt paint those sop they reflect the light.
now if the ****ing LED HALOS will show up in a timely manner, we can get these installed.
