    I've always wanted to do a retrofit but I've never had the courage. After reading a few walktheoughs I feel confident I can do it. Here we go!

    Good luck. I had mine done. Now I kinda wish I'd done it myself. I'm actually thinking I might get some extra headlights and redo mine,,,,, one of these days. :hattip:

    Too many…scratch that…not done yet.
    Good luck! What brand did you go with? Take some pics along the way.
    I hope to get something similar done in the months ahead.

    Side note - Does that original NES work?

    I think @dcsleeper408 has an extra set that might be for sale. I want to do it to but what I'm scared the most is baking he headlamps open and getting rid of all the factory goo.

    OP - please let us know how baking the headlights open goes. What steps , temperature etc.

    The baking is scary. Hopefully I'll see @dcsleeper408 tomorrow. I've seen your work, you're more than capable. I believe it's 200 degrees. @MotoTundra what temp.
