It's cheaper, don't have to take the housing apart, and less effort than making your own. Just my two cents............
That looks nice and they are in black trim too but I still would like to see a set on a black truck to see if I like the look
Thx B2B. That's a nice find.
I guess some how their still making them.
If u end up going that route, id like dibs on the molds so that I can still finish up my S2K retros.Quote:

It's not the easiest job I have taken on but it's by no mean a very difficult one either. Having a lot of patients is the key to doing this project.
The hardest part was taking the headlight housing off by baking them in the oven several times in order to pry is open and avoid damage. But once you have it off, then it's just a matter carefully drill a couple of holes, holding it in place with a little adhesive, and putting the housing back together with a good seal.
I didn't want to experiment on the OEM headlights so I purchased a pair of used ones from the local collision shop for a cheap price. I figured what the heck, if it gets damaged during the process at least I had my OEM headlights to fall back on. Well, all worked out fine and now I have two headlights so I can switch them back and forth whenever I feel like it or put the OEM back on if I decide to sell the lade........
I'll post some pixs of the process when I can find them. Let me know if you need help when you decide take on your project.
That may be what I do if I modify my housings because I don't want to mess up on the only set of housings I have, so if I do any modding on my headlights it will be with a second set so I can swap out if I do decide to sell my truck. P.s if you want to email me some pics just pm me
How's the casting coming along?
