Default Black headlights-I made them!

Hey everyone thought I would post this in here, I have what I believe to be the second pair ever of black housed headlights, made them myself. This is the third vehicle ive done this to and it should've came from chevy like this! I didn't have time for pics during but if I get enough request I will do a right up on them, basically remove the lights, put them in the oven(yes the kitchen oven) for 15 minutes, pry them apart, remove 3 small screws, sand, tape off turn signal reflector and spray whatever color you want! Its truly very easy and is the only way youll get different style headlights for these. I hope to be doing more projects like this soon. Next up is LED taillights with leds surrounding the squares like the new Malibu's. Anyway heres two pictures of the lights installed and right after I finished them! Any questions feel free to ask!

Nice one. That's an interesting project for headlights, and it actually looks good. Thanks for posting.

Old thread but I'm curious on what's the best product to use to seal the headlights again.

Wow, nice job, the end result looks great! Are you planning to protect your blacked out headlights somehow? We have a set of headlights protection films, which are specifically designed to minimize discoloration and protect your headlights from road hazards.

Here is a direct link to headlight and fog light protection kit for your Equinox, check it out: http://www.carid.com/2005-chevy-equi...-16728672.html
