awesome man, can't wait. My switchbacks are on the way, ordered them yesterday evening, should be here wednesday at the latest so either one evening after work or next weekend i'll be doing this myself. Can't wait, going to take step-by-step pictures also, probably going to sand the internals just to be sure that the paint sticks well.

Decided that I'm going to use 3m Butyl Sealer to put them back together once I've got them apart. Going to pick some up from the windshield guys we deal with at work. They'll probably give it to me for free since I'll only need like 4 feet or so.

Hey everyone! The write up is completed! I'll be posting some pictures tomorrow during the day to show you guys how it came out! It looks amazing. To be honest, the projector makes it look like a spider.

Thanks!

Man that looks awesome! Definately should have been an option to have blacked out headlights from the factory since it looks like it fits with the car so well. Great write-up too!

Thanks guys! I've already gotten a handful of compliments from my friends and coworkers. I'm about to post another picture of it in the sun.

It's still the same process basically! If you're feeling inspired, go for it! It's really easier than it looks.
