Looks great!!!, how did you separate the lens?

^pull the 4 metal clips off that hold the lens to the rear housing, pop them in the oven for about 15-20 minutes at around 250 degrees, pull them out and separate with a knife/screw driver/anything flat, and pry the lens off. if the glue hasn't soften enough, pop them back in for another 5-10 minutes and try again
they look good. I'm more of a full-whistler fan myself, but it looks pretty good with just the face painted as well.
they are sold like that without the halo's though: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/CHEVY-CAMARO-98-99-00-01-02-BLACK-DEPO-HEADLIGHTS-PAIR-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem588aa4acfcQQitemZ38028 3170044QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccesso ries#ht_1048wt_939

yea i only had mine in the oven for bout 5 min an they seperated perfect. just be sure to rest them on a piece of wood or something so you dont melt any of the plastic. an i looked for lights like these on here an ebay an all over. never found any. an there they are. but at the same time it only took me bout $20 in materials an maybe 4hrs of my time.

yeah, for the price you can't beat just fixing up your current lights

One more question...What did you use to glue them back together?
10-29-2010, 03:23 AM
Silicone is your friend. :thumb:

yea i used a clear silicone. i removed all the old cracked stuff an just used new. some ppl will just put the lense back on an get a heat gun an re-use the old stuff but thats to risky for leaks.
