Hi, 

I have read that you can spray the inside housing  of the headlights and fit halos to them. (I have the halos myself) 

Could someone recommend some workshops that provide these services. Near or local to Birmingham. 

Have been trying for weeks trying to find someone to work on them. 

 

And yes I'm aware that I can put them in the oven and do it myself however I don't want to take that risk. 

 

Ranj.

I contacted them this week before making this post. They've told me they don't provide this service anymore and that it's too much of a big job.

Ahhh ok 

I imagine it's not cost effective job at that price 

And if it goes wrong the cost of the headlights kills it

Did anyone in Birmingham ever get this done for you mate? 

 

@Ranj 370z 

The OP last visited in December mate so I doubt you'll get an answer from him/her. I'd be interested to know too as I'd like mine split and painted but would prefer someone with experience to do it.

 

I can burn oven chips, so I don't fancy putting £1000's worth of headlights in my oven :lol:

@14N I guess our hunt begins! I'm happy to DIY my lights, just need a steady hand to spray paint the internals. Fitting halos/demon eyes should be relatively easy. 

 

Tried hunting for spare headlights but they are hard to come by.

I really wanna do this too, but I'm hopeless at this sort of stuff, so don't stand a chance of doing this myself.

Just thought I'd join in on this in case anyone wants to cater to everyone intersted for a price of course!

I was exactly the same regarding the oven method and would never do that! I used the alternative way of just using a heat gun. It was actually very simple to do, it just required patience.

 

I actually didnt even use a heatgun as i didnt have one, i used a hairdryer. And it still worked. If i can take them apart with a hairdryer, anyone can take them apart using a proper heatgun :lol:

David how about resealing etc? How did you do it? What did you use? Sorry for the Q’s! :lol: My main concern is sealing them correctly to ensure (as much as possible) that they don’t must up or allow condensation to form. 

 

Any pics of the finished item back on the car? Just so we can admire your work.

Haha. No worries at all, ask away...

 

I scraped out/off the old silicone and then basically went nuts with loads of replacement silicone sealant. The sealant i got was made for a glue gun holder, which made it very easy to apply into the crevices where the sealant goes. Just make sure you apply loads and almost go over the top with it and you will be fine. Then just reheat the edges and push the lights back together.

 

Here is the finished product. I was very happy with the results.

As @davidv10 has already said. Very easy to do if you fancy a bit of DIY.

 

Start to finish it took me about a day to complete, although most of that was drying time.

I believe you have to drill a tiny hole to take the wires through 

The only issues I have herd of is the heat of the light melting glue used to fix them

Any chance there's a group price that he'll be willing to do them for if we get enough interest?

I'm interested in getting mine done as well, so if it is possible for a group buy, you can add me to the list
