2001 and newer style headlights that have been opened

I want to buy headlights that have been opened. I'm looking for a pair to do HID/Projector/LED retrofit work on. I need them already opened. PM me or just respond here.

I will pay for all the parts, you just open them successfully for me.

It's not that hard, I've done Accord lights before when I was in 9th grade and they turned out perfect. Plus look at all the tards who do them and don't have problems, just try it yourself man.

I'm good at LEDs, I fail after fail opening lights (tried 04 tails, and TYC corners).

I'll pay you to do that for me.

I'll do the LEDs.

I had to open up my brand new ones when I got them... I was not happy. But they did come apart easily enough. I still have my 2004 headlights and stock orange corners. I can try to open them up tomorrow... how much you wanna pay me for em? Both have minimal if any scratches at all. Been a while since I looked at em, Been sittin in a box for a while. Headlights have very minimal hazing... can't tell unless you stick a brand new set up next to them. Do I get to charge labor for my efforts? lol

Get them (just the headlights) apart and post some very detailed photos. I'll buy them if they are in great shape and you get them apart without damage.

Didn't get a chance to get them apart, so I'll have to try on Sunday.. but I did try to take some pics so you could see them and decide if you still want me to try and get them apart. Keep in mind they are my stock ones, so they have a little bit of chipping.. nothing major and can't tell unless you're up close. I tried to show it as best as I could in the pictures.

Can't really tell from the photos how nice these lights are. Maybe you can call me if I pm you my #?

Anyways..

- I just sucessfully opened my Stock Visteon 2004 headlights, but I still need another set for another truck. Opened or not, I'm willing to buy a set of headlights that are in GOOD shape.
