OOoo! Euro-tastic! I've been wondering how that would look, thanks for the pics. Did you do it following WRX light clearing instructions more or less? Any scary moments?

I am only hesitant to do it because it removes all reflectors from the front. If I could get some clear reflectors to put there in place of the OEM ones, then I would do it in a heart beat.

Technically it's not legal and you could fail inspection in some states. There must be amber reflectors visible to the side in the front part of the car.

But it does look good!!

Looks much better, good job. And congrats on being crazy enough to stick your headlights in an oven. I can't even get near my wifes BAJA with a screwdriver, I can't even imagine what she would if she saw me putting her lights in the oven. No matter how cool it would look.

I know I know!

"Why do we need a Magnaflo exhaust on the truck?"
Because it will give it some performance and sound cool.
"It sounds just fine."
So, you're saying it needs some more performance?
"No, there is nothing going to be done to the truck!"
How about these way cool Rota 17s?
"Whats the matter with whats on there now?"
It will just looks better and ...
"No."
Well So-and-so is giving away his STi down..
"No."
Honey, these brake pads...
"No."


Soooo, I'm looking at Bajas and Foresters and other things...maybe I'll trade the vw and isuzu

Yes i did follow the WRX light clearing thred. IT was very helpful and i would reccomend you read it carefully at least 3 or 4 times before and during the process.


The main things i can say are this
1: DO it slowly and carefully
2: Take extreme care not to touch the bulb or jar the headlight assembly as the bulbs are very fragile and will burn oy if you get grease from your hands on them.
3: place the headlights on towel or somethign when you are working on them since the lenses scratch VERY easily.
4: be vary careful not to touch the silver reflector part because it will leave permanet marks.
5: when the headlights are hot, becareful not to get the gooey sealant all over the pace like i did. It does not come out.


other than that it was actualy quite simple and easier than i thought. Took me a total of about 2 hours. Made a huge difference and looks so much better. YOu dont really realize how much the yellow throws the clean looks off until you remove them. I also replaced the orange stock turn signal bulb with clear bulb so its all cleared out.

It is legal in California which is among the strictest when it comes stupid laws.
here is the law copied fromt he DMV website

California Vehicle Code.
24953. Turn Signal Lamps Required:
~~~~~~~~
(a) Any turn signal system used to give a signal of intention to turn right
or left shall project a flashing white or amber light visible to the front
and a flashing red or amber light visible to the rear.

Texas Vehicle Code (direct cut and paste leaving out a,b, and c):

547.324. Turn Signal Lamps Required:
~~~~~~~~~~
(d) A turn signal lamp shall emit:
(1) a white or amber light, or a color between white and amber, if the lamp
is mounted on the front of the vehicle; or
(2) a red or amber light, or a color between red and amber, if the lamp is
mounted on the rear of the vehicle
