Hump day bump for my buddy


Unlike most people (today is wed-nes-day, thanksgiving eve) i won't have a turkey In the oven tomorrow. I'm thinking tail lights. I'm going to attempt this again.

Question: about how long do you leave them in for? I'm assuming same as headlight temp 225 F after removing bulbs and trim and stuff

Honestly I think a good ole heat gun it the best choice for separating any head/tail lamp housings. Reason being is that it isn't necessary to heat up the entire assymbly to open them up when you only need to heat up the adhesive. Oh another thing I took note of is the sealant that Honda uses for their OEM housings. I really believe that they use Honda bond. I have always used 3m windshield adhesive to put my headlamps back together. Unfortuneately I have only seen that stuff in black. The Honda bond is grey.

I used the oven, I like even heat better. so I set it at 225*F and left one piece at a time in for 7 minutes one way, then rotated it and left it for 5 more minutes. (with bulbs, trim, reflectors etc. removed) then slowly pried off the lens with plastic pry tools. putting the piece back in the oven a few times to warm the sealant back up some more. then regular blackhouse procedure.

the inners were the hardest. I used a dremel to grind away the tabs.


note: the reverse section of the inner tail is a separate piece.

once you have the inner tail light lens off you are able to remove the brake light reflector shield. (only way to get to it is from the inside) I went ahead and polished it since I was in there.


here is a comparison of the inners. I left the plastic reflectors in.


all done

^^thanks man for looking, happy to know I can help a soul. I got the idea from typeG, and then I started blk housing everything that will come apart. Stock lights fit nice and snug but once they apart and u reclamp them, its not 100% flush and snug. For me I always have some type of gap issue.

Don't know if it counts because i didn't actually paint the housings but it looks like its Blackhoused because i made these led boards for my dome lights on painted cardboard.

Went and clear coated my blk housed tail lenes, for some reason it came out clear.. but has tiny ass white spots. Maybe i didnt shake it or wat. But u can see it in some pics. They r beater tails so its ok. But still came out nice from looking dull. Just totally random i picked up the can and sprayed them.
