That beast looks sick bro.
Did you get my pm earlier
Thanks man! I did get your PM, think I'll do that mod next weekend
Lookin good bro congrats.
Kool. Well remember once your done with the led's before you put it back together to cut out the squares in the tint material so your led's would be alot brighter. Keep us posted!
gud how to!
real quick ? when u are done with the light do u put it bak into the oven to re seat the silicone or just let dry on its own about to start it right now off to car quest to get what i need...
You put it back in to heat up the silicone, correct. This is from the 1st page write-up that I followed:
"Next, put the 2 pieces back in the oven at 300 degrees for 5 minutes to get the caulk soft. I also used silicone window/door to put in the seam of the housing. Then, I pressed it back together tightly. put the hex screws in and popped the tabs in place. After that I put another bead of silicone all the way around the seams again. "
oh forshure i alrady got one apart letting the paint dry .. now did u try to remove the original silicone or just left it and added more
Leave it, that silicone is the best, its super strong and sticky. That's why you heat it up again at the end to make the factory silicone gel-like so you can 'smoosh' it back together close to the same as it was, and add some more silicone to it just to be sure. I gave mine some pressure while it was drying to ensure that the factory glue held them together as it dried.
cool thanx for the quick answers after this is on to the tail lights
No problemo! I was in your same boat when I did mine a few months ago, and some fellow XRU homies quickly responded to me as well. Glad I could help. Remember to turn your oven OFF! LMAO Post some pics later buddy. :rockon:
Just wanted to say thanks for doing this write-up. I have become more and more fearless about tackling projects on my truck. This is only about the third mod I have done to it but it's coming along quite nicely. I think a lowering project will likely be next in the near future, most likely with Sittin Sic. Anywho, just wanted to post up some success pics. Thanks again!
I also decided to take the bottom black piece off just above the bumper. Looks much better without it.
has anyone tried to color match the inside of the light to the truck. I was thinking of going that route. what does everyone think about that idea.
KETCHUP has his color matched to RR
Since the Rev's X is SWB, here's Lenie's: :top:
That is so dope ... I am now doing it for sure thanks for the pics ... You all just put me over the edge and it is time to pull these lights apart. Thanks again.
It's a mod you won't regret.
ya i was just one that did not want to do black but know that I have seen the color match ... I am there ... since I work at a body shop I will have my painter do these after I tear them apart.
I'm gonna try and do this as soon as i can good write-up!
ok so i did the bhml and i need to put my 2 cents in. First off if your scared:ahhhhh: don't be it really isn't that hard. Like every one says just take your time. The first one i did at 310 * for 11 minute and as they say it was a Mofo to pull apart:argh: and i'm a big guy. So the seconnd one i did 310* for 12 minutes wow what a differernts much much easyer :top: i did 6 light coats of paint and let it dry for like 7 hours. Put some new silicone and baked them i also bought some clamps like someone on here suggested i got 12 2" clamps .99 cents each so there clamped now im waiting 12 hours to let them cure and then i'll put more silicone around them and reinstall no sweat..:biggrin:
