Default DIY: Blackhoused headlights(ED6)

Tools you will need:
Ratchet
Extension
12mm deep
10mm deep
Phillips screwdriver
Black BBQ paint

O.k first off I am not responsible for any damage done to you or you car while following this DIY.

In the wheel well there are 2 screw that you need to remove on each side. They need to be removed so the bumper can hang.


Next take out the bumper signals.


There are 2 12mm bolts that will need to be removed per side.


And underneath the car the are 2 10mm bolts hold the bottom part of the bumper.(i don't know if they needed to come out but it's only 2 bolts).


Then the bumper pulls up and out. You do not have to remove the bumper, simply just pull it down so you can get the 10mm socket and extension in to take out the 2 bolts.



Take the small screw out of the turn signals and slide them forward and take them off.


The 2 10mm bolts above the headlight...you got it, they come out too. Unplug your bulbs. Now just twist and and pull out the headlight and it's bracket.

Bring them the the place you are going to work on them and take of all the brackets and plastics with the screwdriver.


I washed my headlights and brackets in soapy water to get all the grease off before i put them in the oven.

There are 6 clips clamping the lens to the housing. Look at the picture below. That IS NOT how you get the clips off you will chip and crack the lens.


If you notice the lens gets lower beside the clip so slide the clips off don't pop them off.


Preheat the oven between 210-225deg. If you washed your lights make sure they are 100% dry before stickin them in to cook.


About 10min later they should come apart with a butter knife, if not then put them in for longer. Use oven mitts taking them out as they will behot.



Then tape of the back reflector and the smaller reflector sides.


Now take your bbq paint(i used enamel because it's what i had) and apply 5-6 thin coats.

Put the bread in the toaster.


Put the meat on the bread.


Now enjoi your samich and play some MW3.



When the paint is dry you can put them back in the oven to heat the glue back up and stick them together using the slider clamps to hold the lens tight to the housing. I recommend putting some new glue on there too.

And Vwa-la!


I have not installed them yet because it is dark so i will post pictures of them back on the car tomorrow.

Thanks for checking.

Put some fat on that sammich! (Mayo, cheese, musTURD, if you must, olives, )(#$(*#$ it, even butter for the toast, darnit!)

It doesn't look to bad, but that's not something I would do in a housing of that sort. I am betting you'll notice less useable light output. If not, rock on.

I did it to my cb7 and it didn't affect it a whole lot but but they were a little dimmer. still totally drivable.

And i hate everything you just listed off for samiches. I like butter but it's gross when it touches the meat...makes a bad taste. But salt salt is my #1 ingredient in/on everything.

That just makes the problem bigger. You're glaring the heck out of other people with plug-and-play HID kits. If you want good light output, do the proper projector retrofit and it'll be 10x better than your plug and play kits.
