    Mike I just want to add this link I found about how to make castings better

    http://www.hirstarts.com/casting/advanced.html

    Check out the "Wet Water" one it might be helpful to getting the plastic in to all the spots also the vibrating table looks like a good idea.

    I installed the black headlights I bought off eBay with clear reflectors already in them. I had intended to continue to try make my own as I really prefer the chrome headlight housing, but I just have too many other things going on. The molds aren't in perfect shape after so many failed attempts, but if you still want them I can send them to you next week.

    Pics of the black/clear headlights from ebay?

    I'd be interested in assisting with the molds. I have a friend that owns a machine shop.
