    Well i was told tadai by one of the guys at the local shop that one can paint the headlight housing of a 6th gen civic.
    Steps are:
    preheat oven to 350 degrees
    pop in the headlights fo r about 3mins or when glue comes apart
    pull off the face of the headlight
    spray the inside with color desired
    and...???
    Can someone please list this method in detail for me. Thanks

    on the sol when i was making my corners clear i just popped the lenses off, was real easy


    the oven thing works though, my friend did it to his supra headlights to clean the inside of them
