Its not that hard, saw Toby do this to Cory's car. Put the lights in the oven on warm and let the glue soften. Then pull them apart, and paint. But be sure to use good glue when you put them back together otherwise you get condensation.

it really isnt that hard...
but it just takes time... thats mainly what id be charging for...

cuz its not a really fast DIY by any means...

to do it right and to make it look nice you really gotta spend some time and do a good job...

thats why i said 5 hours...

i did it on my 97 civic... and OMG i jacked it up!!!

but ive done about 3 other cars... and all of them just got progressively better...

so all in all ive done it about 5 times cuz i did mine twice... the first time was just JACKED UP!

anyways...

if you want im totally down to help you out...

That price seems good for me. So where do you live? I am in San Diego right now. I am thinking of black housing after I got the HID kit and so I can also figure out where to mount the ballast while the housings are away.

Thanks.
