Head/Tail Light Mods

Has anyone tried to bake apart the Headlights/Taillights yet? I may have this done soon and just wondering if anyone else had done it yet or tried for these newer type of lights. Either way, I'd like to get them black interior, instead of the stock chrome. Anyone?

(Srry if this has already been discussed, I couldn't find anything like it other than actually purchasing JV heads and tails, but we all know... for a mod on budget, JV/SRT lights are way expensive.)

Signature?

There is a guy on cherokeesrt8.com that does this. He is very good. He has tones of threads on it and he did a set for my 06 srt8gc. Only problem is you have to ship him your lights. He does switch backs, halo's, projector retro fit's, and painted rear housings. Hope this helps.

yeah. but I was wondering if these newer generation 300's would be subject to it.. wasn't sure if the newer style head/tails were something not to mess with in this manner. But that's also another thing, I've already talked with oracle lighting about doing the same thing. Getting a color shift setup with my lights, they said I'd have to ship them in to them as well... and then they'd paint them and install the LEDs and whatnot.. but then i'd be out of transportation for ... weeks? Not something I could do. I've also talked to a local place and they said they'd have their guy look at it when I bring it in to black out my chrome accents. But thats 2 weeks away. Just looking into information for it. Not really looking to spend the 500 bucks for headlights and whatnot if they can't bake them apart and seal up again.

But my plan is to at least try this with the Taillights, Black out the chrome. The headlights may have to wait till I can get the color shift kit in and do it all together at one time. All in all, if they can do the taillights and whatnot i'll get some pictures in. Wouldn't be too different from varvatos tails, just price haha. I guess its all plausible if I could find the weather seal stripping used around the light fixture, then you could pretty much do anything you wanted, with a guaranteed new seal on afterwards

Which I guess pretty much solves my own question? ... anyway, does anyone know what kind of weather seal stuff is used on them? I'd might as well check it out and get some anyway

Have you looked around for used headlights from a 300S? Must be some wrecked by now. As for the rears, the outer chrome/silver edge looks like it's part of the seal. Not sure how you could ever make that right again if you separated it. Why don't you try Lamin-X. I think it's about $50 total for both rear lenses.

Yeah I could always look for wrecked 300's for headlights/taillights, but if anyone in their right mind would know that's selling them, they'd still be expensive. But its always worth a look around to check.

As for the film/tint, thats illegal in my state/area to have those covers/tints. Although I think it should be fine if you have the LED taillights, they're pretty bright and still work... lol - anyways, but I figured I could just make the chrome a black, and kind of make it the same accented way..

The lightest shade of Lamin-X is just about the same darkness as JV Tails. The Authorities will never know.

That's not what I'm trying to get at here though.. I'm trying to find the best way to properly change my chrome accent of the taillight, to a black accent. Without buying a whole new set of JV Taillights for hundreds of dollars... Not really looking to do a tint/cover..

I get it, but short of buying JV Tails, I don't think that you are going to have any success. Good luck though.

Those JV tails are very expensive. Hopefully, I'll bump into someone who would rather have the chrome ones than the tinted JV's and just do a swap.

For sure the front headlights have been baked and taken apart and put hid projectors in, there is a there on here detailing how to do it, so the fronts do come apart. I will be doing it to my S as I am changing mine to chrome and silver with the projector mod as I have a white S and with the chrome grille I have coming dont like the dark lights.
