    Great write up and your car looks amazing.

    I did this 10 years ago to my 02 Z28 (Thus the origin of my handle on all forums). They came out great as well but after a year, I started getting condensation on the inside of the lens. It would dry and look horrible so I wound up buying replacement factory head light assemblies. Hope that does not happen to you. My Z28 had drains as well. Doing this would complete my black-out look but I'm just too concerned as these assemblies are NOT cheap to replace.

    Any updates? Now that you guys have been running with the Plasti Dip lights for awhile, is it holding up?
    Any consistent condensation issues?
    How much did your headlight output drop?
    How do they do in night time driving?
    I'm wanting to try this in the next two weeks but my car is a daily driver and will see rain, snow, all types of weather.

    Re: Black Out Headlight Mod...

    Hey Nathan, nice writeup, I'm a couple years late, but doing a similar project to mine. Just bought the xenon housings, but instead of painting the inside, i am replacing the standard bulb with a plasma bulb and lining the turn signal "compartment" with amber LED strips. Obviously it's impossible to do that with the small 3x3 hole in the back, so i need to take the assembly apart to have room, and to make it look nice enough. anyway the directions are nce except for the actual disassembling of the lens. after you took it out of the oven, what did you do to "work" the lens apart? razor blade? did you use anything to pry it apart?

    Looks great! I'm not savvy enough to do it myself, but it looks really good!
