Default I messed up.

So I got a set of JDM HIDs, and was working to change the cutoffs to LHD. However, as I unfortunately discovered, my oven is too small. It put the lens too close to the burner, and it completely ruined the lens.

I'll be borrowing a heat gun for the other side.

What I'm wondering though, is if I can use the lens from a regular headlight, and put that on with the black chrome and all. Has anyone done this before, or looked to see if they're the same?

I don't see why it would be a problem. The OE headlights are a smooth lens.

Alright, that sounds good. I have the JDM HID's to replace a set of absolutely worthless aftermarkets that are on there right now, so I guess we'll hope that those have the screw holes for the black chrome trim piece.
