Well I cut off the nubbies with the dremel, and it made cleaning and polishing alot easier. I still sanded both lenses down with 800, 1500, and 2000 grit, then polished. One of the lenses had some water spots on it, and was kinda funny looking being perfect on the outside and faded on the inside. I pulled the lens apart after soaking in really hot water for a couple minutes. Here's the before:



During;


After:





I used silverstar 9007su's.... they were on sale for 35 bucks..... yay

They really came out great. I'll have to take better pics in the sunlight.... Its hard to do the job justice without looking at them in person;) I couldn't ask for better results. :)

PS: What's the best way to get a night pic of my lights? I'm having a hard tome getting a decent shot

Great work.
You used the same exact method I did. I used a cut-off wheel on my Dremel and carefully removed them. Getting a "full stroke" on the surface during polishing makes a big difference.

I know this is a n00b question, but how do I remove the headlights? I can't figure out how to undue those things... I feel like I'm going to break something if I put any force on them.

Just use a 9mm 1/4 inch ratchet. IIRC its half a turn to pop the three dealies off.

And yes, I did talk to mike about th epost before making it, hense my exclusion of certain aspects of the job ;)

three metal clips on the back of each light, in your case. it takes a pair of external snap ring pliers to remove them.

nice work, kid :cool:
