I'd like to see a picture of each so I can decide which I want to do.
    I went with flat black engine enamel, because the insides of head lights tend to get quite warm. You'll also need sand paper; I used 400 grit. Theres a GREAT thread floating around on how to do the '04/'05 lights. It's going to take a good chunk of time if you consider each light needs to be in the oven twice for 20min (once to break the seal and again to reseal), and drying time in between coats of paint.

    Good point about the time it will take. Perhaps I'll just go with clear and not paint anything. They're also calling for showers on sunday, just for the record. Are we still looking at 1/6 as the date? I'm really flexible as far as the date, so if Sunday doesn't work, we can do it another day.

    I did mine in about 1.5-2hrs, total, start to finish, so that's not too bad.

    Lets get a list of who wants to do it. Let me know and I'll add you to the corresponding list:


    FLEXIBLE TIME:
    1. s0n1c - blob
    2. Bd sti - ? (out of town 1/6 )
    3. brain juice - hawkeye


    Schoolboy:
    1. RossLH - bug


    Is that all that's wanting to do them? I thought, for some reason, there were more..


    JSarv - Winchester's a nice place. To visit I hate it. LOL

    That's cool. I was tempted to try to do it myself at my parents' house since I live in an apartment complex and I can't really work on the car there. I'm going to find a walk through and read it and see if it's something I want to try to tackle on my own. If I complete it, I'll let you guys know how it goes and such.
