    Wait till he makes ones with a light smoke - they'd look perfect on your ride. Once James verifies that these fit 2010+, I'm going to order lightly smoked ones...

    Good idea! Maybe in the midst of the July heat, we'll do this project!
    Hey - on the plus side, you probably won't need an oven!

    Ugh don't get me started on the heat. I bet we can leave the headlight outside in the sun and pry it apart without even touching an oven.

    I would really like a set of these. How do you install them in the headlights? Is this simple or more advanced where you'd have to put the lights in the oven or...? Simple is better for me.

    Hey there, potential customer!

    Read the whole thread: I put up instructions, and it is really really easy to do - it can literally be done in 20 minutes. In fact, on a hot enough day, I believe that the headlight sealant would be softened enough to actually pull the lenses out of the body without the oven (though I haven't tried it ).

    PM me to let me know!

    Re: Clear Headlight Side Markers

    Wish I had the time to undertake this project...love the DIY mods. I work in the hospital 100 hours a week so I rarely have time to do anything I just recently completed a 2008 Range Rover Westminster conversion to a 2010-11 MY...I really would like to black out the surround on the headlights and get the side markers smoked. I also would like to smoke the rear side markers on the 2010 tail lights. Would you be willing to undertake the process? lol....I know jbrac does this here on the westcoast...but wondering if you would take on a project for me as you seem like you do great work.

    P.S. On my new 2010 tail lights the rear fog lights are always on when you turn on the lights and can't be turned off....we tried installing relays but they are so loud!!! buzz like crazy! Resistors were added on all 4 corners for the blinkers and work fine...right now I am trying to reset the adaptive headlight failure flashing light. Any words of wisdom would be much appreciated and let me know about getting my headlights and tail lights done.

    Cheers,

    Re: Clear Headlight Side Markers

    Just got them in the mail today. To be honest, it wouldn't be such a big deal if I just purchased them off the shelf, but knowing that someone put the time and effort into researching the casting methods, purchasing the equipment, and all the trial and error involved in producing a quality end product makes me appreciate them that much more. Great job on the lenses Mike . I will install them this weekend if I can find the time.

    They look fantastic. Do you have a source and install process for the hlos as well?

    Love the craftsmanship and attention to detail. I am trying to get up the nerve to bake the headlamps and order a set, do the halos and paint the ineriors zermatt!

    You'll see once you do it: it's easy as pie. The polycarbonate lenses on the RRS headlight are extremely temperature resistant (not true of the tail lights, btw). The adhesive holding the lens to the body is very gooey (easy to soften), and the lens comes out quite easily.

    The HALOS are Umnitza Orion LITEs (not V2), and my source is Lightwurkz.

    Good luck!

    Great FFRR~!

    I'm not crystal clear what you're asking me to do here. Are you talking about having me customize both your head and tail lights? Or just the side markers? I could easily do side markers, but you'd have to provide me yours, so that I could make moulds and replicate them in clear or smoked.

    As for doing wiring and figuring out the rear foglamp 'on' position, I'd actually need a FFRR here to fiddle with, and since I don't, I shouldn't get involved to that level.

    It wouldn't be hard for me to do HALOS and paint your headlight bezel black (as well as smoked side markers), so let me know what you have in mind exactly based upon these new limitations, and I'll figure out what it takes.

    Thanks!

    Re: Clear Headlight Side Markers

    Ok...I'm in for a set of medium smoked markers! I've got dark smoked side markers, but I think for the front lens, a medium might be better.

    Ironically today...I see that I have a small spider sitting right next to my orange lens at the moment, so this will give me a chance to replace and clean house at the same time!

    How can I resist with such quality work and detailed modding instructions!

    Please send Paypal info...will send payment today!

    I only have one condition: I'd like an autographed version!

    Hey mate,

    Big Pimp from RRSport.co.uk

    If the 2010 are the same as the pre '10 lenses, I'm very interested in smoked ones.

    Awesome work, btw
