    So im new to the Scooby scene but been reading this forum for a very long time. So 2 months ago i bought my 1st stunning bugeye rex and now 8 years after the original Koji mod i have done mine today with a little bit of a twist to keep it up to the latest trends. Still a work in progress as i still want to fit projectors. But let me know what you guys think

    Im from South Africa so we dont really have access to alot of mod parts for the Scoob so i do everything myself. Even the lip spoiler on the front bumper i made myself

    Where did you run the wires through form the inside of the headlight, to the outside for the LEDs?

    So I'm confused; you heat it up, remove all the original silicone, blahblah, then you have to heat it up again to put new silcone on?

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding. Haven't done it yet... going to soon tho.

    So I saw a Scion TC (lame, I know) today and it gave me an idea; paint the edge of the pvc pipe chrome. Might try it, I'll post pics if I like it. Is that stupid that a Scion made me think of it? Guess it doesn't matter if it looks good...

    Oh and I have a product that might help your painting: liquid masking tape. You paint it on and it works just like masking tape, peel it off when you're done. Makes it easier to go around corners, mask circles, or anything that isn't a straight line.

    From the r/c car world, figured someone might find it useful.

    ^^just an example theres a ton of brands and sizes

    Yes, you reheat the factory adhesive/sealer before you reinstall the halves together. Some people add some clear silicone to make sure it's sealed up, but I have never had a problem just reheating the factory stuff. It's kind of like tongue and groove going back together.

    hope it's alright to bump this but does anyone know if he's talking Fahrenheit or Celsius for the oven temp?

    Hi, new to the forum after lurking for a while, hope this question isn't too noob-ish.

    I just bought a 2002 WRB WRX, and I plan on doing this mod next week. After finally growing a pair and deciding to do this, I realize that the actual reflector portion(where the blinker resides) gets painted as well. I can't find any photos of a fully disassembled housing, so I can't tell if it is necessary to paint this portion. Could I just do the lining between the headlight and the blinker portion, or do I HAVE to paint the reflective blinker part? If I do not have to, how would I go about masking this part off? Sorry if this has been beaten to death, but I've been searching for hours and I can't seem to find any answers. Thanks in advance guys...

    i bought a pair of headlights that were already painted, with bulbs in them for 100. local parts guy just sells the headlight housings for 100 which i was going to buy because id like to do it on another pair rather than my stockers first incase anything were to go wrong, then resell the stock headlights when finished. so got the headlights on, used a meguairs headlight restore kit which worked awesome but then i noticed theres a big finger print on the inside of the one koji headlight and the other has some haze inside...soo ill be taking them apart most likely in the spring to clean the inside out and maybe repaint inside. as far as i can tell the paint looks good inside, just the lenses inside are cloudy..


    so the question, when you bake them in the oven, does it make the house stink like burnt plastic or if ya just turn the fan on and dont overbake them youll be alright with no smell?

    heres pics of mine. preheated to 210 for 10 mins though. did not do the PVC piece so theyre not "koji's"..used cheap gloss black paint for insides, stained glass spray for the sidemarker light covers and painted over the sidemarker light bulbs as well. resealed with black silicone
