Should have just made a thread when you were done. Make sure you seal it good.

Need some advice on the adhesive.

I bought some GE waterproof silicone caulk.
Is that the same thing as silicone adhesive?

You can always set them outside in the sun to cure

or if you have a heat lamp set them about 5 feet from it

finished, ill get pics in the morning, Turned out great though.

Only thing I did not like about this mod was pulling them apart and it took 2-3 days for completion of drying times.

you can buy the black headlights on ebay for $106 shipped right meow. I think thats easier than messing with the oven and possibly destroying the headlights, not to mention that they might leak if you dont seal them properly
