Default Bake And Paint Headlights

Hey 6th gen maxima owners. Most of you might have alot of experience in this but i am honestly a newbie making slight modifications to my max just taking it slowly. I've been seeing a couple of videos and pictures on ppl baking and painting their headlights and thats a modification i would defenitely love on my car(as well as adding halos ofcourse) i just dont want to mess up and end up with a pair of broken headlights.....Anyone has some advice

-Thanks

Well i just did this like a few days ago and is really easy , just make sure you dont loose any of the metal things that go on your fogs b/c i did lol , anyway take all the wires out and bake it for 25 min at 225 is what i did and it work fine , you going to have to pull apart your self but with that time the glue will be soft, then take out the part you going to paint , some people take out the reflector/yellow strip on the side i didn i use tape (masking tape) spray the paint then took the take off But is up to you some people tape that yellow/reflector out but like i said is up to you.

Yes it happen to me but not cause i didnt seal it right i think it was i didnt put those white bags back on the headlights when i finish with , and those 2 white bags was to keep things from moisture happen and i didnt know that , so i will oder some new headlights and do it over and keep all things right , practice makes perfect even if it cost you 700 more dollars

P.S Mind you i took the car to the wash today and no water or moisture but i just dont like the though in my head that those white bags is not in my lights

Mine get all fogged up after every rain. Do not touch the inside of the headlight; the clear part. An let the paint cure for a day or two before putting it back together.
