Has anyone tried opening the headlights. I want to paint them black on the inside. Is there a step by step. Ice taken them off and removed the bulbs but i can't seem to take out the low beam thing. And i dont want to bake it if ours going to mess it up.

Never did it to my MDX, but I did open my Integra lights, after 4 minutes at 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

If you want to experiment, check ebay, for some cheap cloudy lights.

i did bake mine and they open up nicely. while you are there, you might as well swap that 2.5'' black series projector with another one that perform better. Or, at lease, swap the lens with a clear one.

Some of the PVC back covers become softer to even medium temps. I have opened several from Nissan and Honda in order to retrofit them from Halogen to HID projectors. I have found 185-degF is a safer temp overall to avoid deformations of the back cover.
