Yes you can black out your corners. Just use a lot of patience when opening them. And I do mean LOTS!!!!

Here's some Pics of a 2007 Accord I did. Tell me what you think.

One last thing...

Okay, so NO silicone. Blackhouse corners=yes.

Last question: Once you heat up your headlights, do you get any sort of fumes or odors coming out from it? This is very important to me coz my wife's got asthma.

Thanks.

yeah the glue that honda uses kinda smells a bit funky. I don't think there's anyway to avoid that smell. i don't know if its toxic or not. I didn't die lol.

Nice writeup!

I'm gonna grab a set of headlights from the junkyard and do this soon. I love the way the CB headlights look black housed.

Just use a sweeping motion and try not to put it on too thick. Then heat cure it the oven.

Just worried that they might be deformed, coz they're probably substandard materials.

question about applying the yellow, do u have to mask the parts that was painted black in the high beam housing, or can you just paint over it?
