haha nah i aint that desperate.
kinda sucks they dont make em anymore tho.
deff the coolest headligts for the GA

thought about doin the black projectors but cutting the housing seems like it would suck
not to mention the splicing of the wires..
and they dont look near as nice..

still figured id ask tho..
thanks

Black housings/clear corners = best headlights made for the GA. I'm glad that I bought them when they were still around.... in fact, my first set was from right when they first came out, and then I bought this set right after I bought this car.

Bought mine back in August of 08. I wouldn't give up mine for anything.

Best headlights hands down, but yeah, good luck finding a set. lol

The original TYCs were the best. The reflector was darker.

not to interrupt or anything... but how difficult of a process is it to cut open the headlight housing to paint the chrome?

I'm glad to know they are gone, I tried starting about aug of last year and couldn't find the black housing. mine is silver so i just went chrome and then got the clear led 3rd brakelight, and now i'm having a hard time finding the chrome housing led tails...stoopid ebay keeps giving me people who have backorders grrrr

it's not too bad...probably impossible without a heat gun or oven......just gotta heat up the silicone and cut it with a razor when it's hot. then put them back together with new silicone

does it look good when finished? dont wanna make it look stupid...
if u had a pic that would b nice

SuburbGT
03-08-2010, 06:32 PM
i think they look amazing...and plus the ebay ones are chrome behind the reflector, if u paint them yourself you can do that part black...lemme look for a pic...

When I cleared my GT tails way back in the day I was able to break the seal without heating them up. I did it on a warm summer day (about 80 degrees), sat outside and slowly and carefully pried them apart. Never tried the headlights though, but I'm just saying that the tails are possible without a heat gun or oven.

OE headlights can take apart with a putty knife and no heat...tycs are really hard to do

stlbsblmattp
03-09-2010, 07:29 AM
nice job on the headlights dude. when you get the housing apart does the outer casing separate from the reflective chrome part that the lights sit in? or did you have to tape off what you didnt want painted?

SuburbGT
03-09-2010, 08:23 PM
it's all one piece, u gotta tape it up.

Your best bet is used. Or be like one of the other guys on here, buy the crystal housing, clear corners out right now, crack open the housing, and black out the housing yourself.

stlbsblmattp
03-20-2010, 06:37 PM
what if i cut the stock housing apart and painted the inner piece black like in the pic above. does the stock orange reflector come out where i could maybe paint it? or if it doesnt come out do you think it would look good with an overlay?
