Clear Headlight Mod
Hey guys, i did a search on this but it didnt really answer my ? One of my buddy's who has a EVO VIII is doing this mod to his car and said its real easy to do to a rex. I know hes not hating, but he said u only have 2 pop a piece out and change the bulbs, Does this sound right?

I am doing this to mine. I got the silver bulbs that burn amber from Ebay for 10 bucks. It looks easy. I am going to remove headlights. Take a screwdriver, needlenose pliers. Use the screwdriver to break the orange ball. With pliers pick the pieces out. Install silver bulbs that burn amber. Done. I helped a friend do this to his S4. Looks great!!

For the 2004's you have to take your headlights out and bake them in the oven for a while to be able to seperate the headlight. You can then take out the orange pieces. I don't know all the specifications to doing this but you can find it on nasioc.

pretty easy to do. i've actually done it twice now.

here are some pics from when i 1st did it:
i left the orange turn signal cover in.

the second time around i took the orange turn signal out because my silver bulbs came in.

word of advice, put a towel on the cookie sheet when you bake them. i've heard of people melting the plastic.

[martha stewart] pre-heat your oven at 225F. place your head lights into the oven for 10 minutes.

I remember the first time someone told me about baking their headlights in the oven. I laughed for a long time. I got this mental image of someone in an apron and oven mitts cooking their headlights.
