Painted my headlights...

So I painted my headlight housings and was wondering if there's a certain amount of time I have to wait before I pop em back into the oven to put them back together.
It's been about 3 hours since I finished with the paint.

Re: Painted my headlights...

Depends on the paint you used and how many coats.... A good rule of thumb is Let it cure for at least 8-12 hours usually....

Re: Painted my headlights...

So I went to hook up the ballast to my car and I blew a fuse. All I did was just plug it straight in to the existing wiring harness in my car.
Anyone want to tell me how to wire it? You can see the ballast in the pic I posted earlier.

Re: Painted my headlights...

I tried to get the least amount of glare on them but I didn't do so good.
Cut off pics possible tonight.

By the term bi-xenon you mean dual beam (hi and low)? sorry I'm such a noob when it comes to retro fits. I want to get you to do a TSX in mine. But I also have the wife's minivan that its lights really suck even on hi beam. So if you can do a dual or bi-xenon if thats what its called I may have to send you the headlights soon. If your ready for another couple HID retro conversions.

Kinda like turning them on! LOL! Im really into lights and when I got the lude and found out what bulbs they were and the high beam output I was like "are you facking kidding me?!" I really, REEEALLY want a bi-xenon conversion. Anytime I pull in a car that has them and do a light check I just drool. Love your car btw.

Looks very nice, super discrete and clean.

The wheels do look good, I wonder how a set of Base blades would look? I'll be waiting for you to give ogsmakdade a reply.

Plus about how much was it
