Looks great! I've done clear/blacked out headlight mods on a few of my vehicles, I might have to consider doing this to the V...

for those that have done this, looking for a bit of help. I have the headlight in the oven at 215 degrees, and its not doing anything to this factory glue. I cannot get the lens to budge one bit. Its been in there for 20 minutes at this point with no luck. I'm afraid to turn the temp up without any further opinions from others that have succeeded at this.

Any help is appreciated!

When doing mine, I would like to throw a brighter LED bulb in the light tube. Does anyone know the make/part number for the brighter LED replacement everyone is using? I have no issues with unsoldering/soldering a new LED in, just need to know what works and what is brighter than stock.

Very informative step by step, nice job. Too involved for me but they look effing great! Came close to pulling a headlight apart on a bike of mine but ultimately chickened out...

If you're in charlotte nc, there's a place that does this for 200 and 350 for demon eyes and Bluetooth controlled halo rings

Doe's someone sell the lights already blacked out?
Maybe someone will post up with what you're looking for, but everyone I've seen that offers the service only does it with supplied lights and doesn't stock cores. They're expensive as fuck from the dealer and hard to find in salvage yards.

Those of you that have done this and used plasti-dip, have you had any issues with the heat from the hid bulbs and/or any issues with "gassing" residue on the lens?

No issues on mine

I don't understand why use plastidip unless you seriously plan on take it all apart again to peel it off... if you want a nice smooth satin paint color use bumper trim paint. It's durable and has a nice satin. Sprays on very smooth and thin not like plastidip
