Color Matched Headlights

Well I pulled the gun yesterday and disassembled my headlights. Took me 5 hrs yesterday to just do one of them. Did the other one today and it took me 3 hrs. The hardest part was getting all the glue out of the headlight after you get it apart. That took the longest time.

Here are some pics of the progress.

Chrome bezel taken out of the lens:


Painted bezel:


Bezel back in lens:


Installed back in the truck:


The truck is filthy, I'm going to wash it tomorrow and get some better pics, but here's the whole front end:

Great work! J/W, what did you do to get them apart? And what made you decide to keep the amber?
