Corners were done with a heat gun. Held the gun on them for about 2 minutes and they fell right apart. Headlights were in the oven on 215* for 15 minutes. Headlights will vary from oven to oven though.

Yeah they look good. Hopefully modding mine here soon. So does this change light output at all? Also what brand of paint did you use and how well does it stay on that chrome?

As long as you dont paint the reflector you are good, no output changed.

I used Krylon Fusion Hammered Silver paint. And my light output is dimmed a little because I painted the reflector.

I painted the reflector on my 06's. I didn't feel like taking the time to tape it up. I'm pretty happy with the looks of it though. If I had to do over I would paint them the same way.

Not the greatest output but honestly, what does the output of that light matter anyways? It doesn't do anything.
