Most folks paint the factory assembly black just like that. Bake the headlight in the oven for a few minutes. Pry apart, then paint!

I have no idea, but based on Neon people's after market experiences, I'm
with Dill- They didn't fit correctly and were of poor quality.

Eventhough they needed to be polished every month, most went back to originals.

The only thing I would recommend would b get another set of used factory ones. That way if u do try to bake them and u break one u have a back up.

I believe Soulman has a set like that and they fit and look beautiful.

ive been pondering the idea of a set of these as well..........i do like the idea of the oven and paint your own trick, id probably paint them to match the car itself...........

I am thinking about doing this to mine and will polish the lenses when they are apart. Just one concern:

What's the best glue to use for sticking the lens back onto the light body?

You should be able to heat it back up and put it together. But if you wish to use extra i belive silicone is what folks use

I have a set of stock aftermarkets and they fit fine. And I don't have to worry if water is going to leak into the headlight. Aftermarket has come a long way.
