my house is open sunday, not sure how my brother would feel about it tho he is hella OCD. I have a wii and ton of games and a garage...the kitchen is just on the other side of the house. I'm sure it could be a blast but gotta run it by the housemate...(its just a idea at this point)

i've done my bugeye headlights once and another SWICer's bugeyes as well. Its easy but will take time considering how huge the lights are in a oven. We'd be bakin while painting most of the day.

ya my bugeye head lights i think I did one at a time? i know my oven isnt anything bigger then average (thats what she said? ) so I am not sure how a hawkeye or peanut eye would fit.

I also didnt bake mine that long either, just until its slimy enough you can get two people to pull them apart. key is doing it while still hot

I would be interested.

But I have no idea how to complete this task on my own, and the last thing I want/need is to buy another headlight assembly.
