It’s hard because I only get a few evenings to do it so I’m normally up till 2am 😬but hopefully once ones done the other will be a breeze

LiterallyImageThe bottom corner is the worst. I bought 5 screwdrivers heated them so they wouldn’t snap and bent them in to hook tools Image

Gloss black that crappy chrome
So I’m now thinking to make the indicators sequential while I have them open but I don’t really know too much about the looms and modules behind, it’s not impossible tho.

Any updates on the headlights mate?
I'm so tempted do to mine but yours looked a right pain lol, worried I won't get them done in a weekend then I'm screwed for work on the monday!
Also when it comes to resealing them, I'm worried about future condensation popping up cause I'm bound to not seal them right.
Decisions decisions!!!

Now they’re open dude they gotta gloss/Matt like
Mine. It’s looks so tasty full de chrome on them is game changing

Once you’ve cracked it. Bell him and tell him you got them open. He may be able to help at this point suppling the bits to finish them. The output on mine is incredible. It’s like have flood lights on the front of the van. He’s defo worth a chat dude. He really knows his stuff

Yeah I’m not gonna lie they are difficult to open but if you take your time you won’t mess up. once their open it’s easy to reseal with butyl tape which other car manufacturers use, you won’t have a problem with moisture if you use enough of it and make sure the seal is consistent. In terms of timescale I would definitely see If you can either grab a temporary set of headlights 😬which might be impossible but if you don’t have to worry about getting them on to your van quick then it will help out.
I would ask the chat if I were you, there might be someone like me that now will have a set of headlights spare.

Are yours done now? Got a picture of them on?
Is the light output affected due to the reflectors being sprayed?
Cheers
