Homemade Blackhousing HL or DEPO ?!

Hi Guys,

want to know if I am better to do a homemade blackhousing in my OEM light or to go with brand new DEPO headlight?!

Does DEPO are good stuff?

Thank you

Guillaume

Okk, that a lots of stuff to learn! I know how to open my headlight, but I am not sure how to reseal them... DO anyone have a good trick to make a great seal?! Do Its better to reseal them with heat?

Thank you guys

It is not cheap and not simple for the average DIYer but since you are curious, here is a post with good pictures and explanation. Totally worth it though.

As for blackhousing your headlights, do homemade if your lenses are clear enough, otherwise others have had good luck with DEPO.
