    Smile Joey'd Headlights

    Just thought I'd throw up some pics of the current project, I started these a while ago as it is a long winded process and not one you can rush, they will be finished over the next couple of days and then all that's left to do is to remove the genuine Valeo ballasts and bulbs I have from a pair of S4 headlights I have and fit these into these ones, hopefully that will be a straight forward job, and away we go!

    It's one of those mods that can't be rushed, these have been in progress for a while now and I have done bits when I've had the time, as said the next step is to put annothe bead of mastic around them to make sure they keep the moisture out and strip the S4 lights down and get the ballasts and bulbs changed over hope to have it all done by Xmas.
    James the next time I see your car I will expect to see them done

    I used a heat gun, pry tool/screwdriver and slowly worked my way around. I thought it was going quite well when I got the first lens off, until I checked the time and three hours had gone by!

    That is not the best way, it is the ONLY way you are going to do it, I have heard of people cooking them in the oven to loosen the seals but the heat gun method you are in control, you will need all of the above and a bucket full of patience, but a mod worth doing.
