Anybody willing to do DIY OEM Blackhousings for me?

anybody does DIY OEM Blackhousings Headlights in Northern California? I would do it myself but my house's oven wont work. Nobody else's family would trust me baking headlights in their oven. So if anyone in Nor Cal can blackhoused my headlights, let me know....i'm willing to pay.



If you're not in California, would you be willing to do the work for me if i ship the headlights to you?

i would do it, but i think shipping and stuff to jersey would be a waste of money for ya. idk about shipping charges, but yea, itd be $(shipping) too much. but i would sugest a heat gun, cuz the oven way is a tad bit dangerous......i think i literally came within 30 seconds of completely screwing up my drivers side light, like melting the clear cover. btw, since you were gonna do the oven way, what degree heat were you gonna set it on, and for how long were you gonna put it in for? you can buy a heat gun at walmart for $20......i did when i tried to fix my tail light, haha, it gets hot quick.....i cooked a hot dog with it the first day i had it, hahaha.

It's so easy to open up ur headlights. Ask ur friend to borrow ur oven for 2 minutes. Start to finish should take only 10-15minutes for a DIY black housing and/or clearing OEM headlight. U need a $4.99+tax black low gloss high heat engine spray paint can. After, u just need a $5.99+tax clear or black RTV sealant/silicone. Dries w/in minutes. That's all. Clean, fast, easy... doesn't take more than 20min for sure.

If you don't have access to an oven, you can open the headlights with just a hair dryer or a heat gun. Same concept, just a little more work.
