Headlight Painting
 
Being that I am in the process of upping the visuals of my WK, I am considering painting my headlight housings to match the facelift that my Jeep is getting over the next couple of weeks. Am I ok doing this by myself with no prior experience? Is it really THAT hard with the 05-07 headlights? I'm going to be using color match paint from automotivetouchup.com and adding HIDs at the same time.

You can do it, Its not hard, just takes patience. like 4-5hrs.
Mkae sure you clean the lens b4 heating it up. and make sure you keep slowly prying and heating. Anymore Questions just ask

Its just hard opening them up...Although some tend to open easier than others for some reason!

From my experience the aftermarket lights open up easier than the OEM ones.
