i didnt know how much the SMD ("lego" LED panel) headlights were hated! im glad i changed them. they were embarrassing to drive around with.

they're gone!!

to the point about execution being shoddy: yea, it was a misguided effort. i will say that any headlight work (baking, unscrewing, splitting, etc) is not easy.

worst of all, the plexiglass light lenses can be ruined in many many ways during the process- making the end result appear smudgy and less polished. my goal overall is electrical integrity and long-term water tightness....
