I like the cleared headlights and taillight garnish.

I said it in your post on the taillights, but I'll say it again. I love this car, great job!

that's me, I like simple. Even the smallest mods can make the biggest difference with enough creativity. Simple, clean, good flow.

I think everyone knows how I feel about any PW on this site...... :cool: Detail mods make the biggest impressions, keep it up.

I hope to do a two-tone also, but the second color has to flow with the overall theme for me. Can't wait to see what more you have in store.

Started with the screw driver method to break it out. But it wasn't working and the reflector scratched the lens.

So I then went to plan "B" baked at 200 degrees for about 6 min at a time between working the sealer loose. After the third baking I was able to seperate the two halves. Then it's easy to get the amber out.
Then put the two halves back in the oven for 5 min. take them out. Put the halves back together, back in the oven again. Take them out then refrigerate.

Good as new with no fogging.

I've done about 2 sets of civic lights
My old Protege5
And now the Box

Thanks for the info. The scratching has been the thing that has stopped me from doing it. I don't want any scratches!!

So, no additional sealant needed after removing the lens?

I didn't reseal. Haven't fogged yet, just don't dig out all the sealer if you can help it.

Thanks! Got a friend who still has his stock H/L's, we'll "bake" his for me, and he'll get my stocks. I'll let you know how it comes out. :)
