    What options are there for modding the blobeye headlights look apart from forking out for some Morette's.

    I'm thinking cheap-ish and cheerful e.g. eyebrows etc.

    p.s. There already de-tangoed but can they be de-chromed?

    Indeed they can...




    They were just sprayed when de-tanoged :)

    Cheers Fleetster. I'll dig out some instructions on de-tangoing.

    This is my next mod.

    The how-to I have seen showed the oven method, but I'm nervous about a bubbling mess in the wife's new kitchen.

    What size of fan heater did you use?

    I have a 2kw one.

  15. Same power as mine.

    If I was to do it again Id use a paint stripper to build the heat up quickly as it has more directional control, then a hair dryer to keep the sealant/glue soft until it went back together.
