Anyone do Retrofit Services (Headlights)?

Seriously want some retrofit headlights but I donít feel comfortable pulling apart my headlights. Anyone offer these services? I could go to the junk yards and get a pair of headlights. Or pay for an extra set. If I ever sold the fit Iíd prefer to take them off.

If they are cheap at the junkyard, you could pull them apart just to experiment. That way your stock headlights can stay on the car and you can tinker with the spare set at your leisure. The experience you accumulate could pave the way for your own headlight-retrofit business. And the rest of us can benefit.

Are you talking about baking headlights? I've done that a few times to cars in the past that i've owned, and definitely plan on doing it to my fit. I have an 08 red fit sport and i think the red headlights look horrible There's a few step by step tutorials on youtube etc that you can follow along with.

I can vouch for Kevin's work; he did a projector retrofit on my GK:

I recently did my 09 Fit, however it wasn’t my first rodeo. The hardest part is getting the damn lights out. My headlights were beyond repair, so I ordered a new set and had them ready to just drop in the car. It’s a very doable project, just do it.
