Holy crap I haven't posted any updates in a long time.
Just maintenance really.
I scrapped the projector project when I last moved due to needing space and those projectors needed a ton of work. Since I didn't pay much if anything for them I threw them out with plans maybe one day to try again.
For now I decided to just paint the lower silver shades of my headlights black, similar to my SC2. Not touching the light refracting silver, but just the decorative silver.
^ The headlights these are out of, was my 2001 Saturn LS1 I bought for parts and scrapped. Kept the headlights, although they had crazy amounts of scratches and fogginess.
^ Here is them after some wet sanding and hand polishing. Still not great but an improvement.
^ And here is the light refracting silver I didn't touch, with the lower silver shade removed.
^ Sanded the silvery silverness. Taped off the reflective silver for the turn signal
^ Back together
^ Re-pressed together and sealed
^ 4th time unsealing and sealing headlights, and I still suck at not making a mess. This is the best result so far, I just have shaky hands.
^ Next day, here is the starting point.
^ Polished and waxed using an orbital because I'm a lazy mofo.
They look great in person, my cell camera doesn't really do it justice. Will take some photos on a not cloudy day maybe.
