Looks great. I just did my decals on my 06 Commander. Has anyone use it on the inside of your head lights? Will it melt from the head of the lamp.

I heard to only use engine block paint because of the heat. I'm dying to paint the inside of my headlights but I'm afraid of screwing it up using the baking method. Any easier ways to do it??

Odd as it sounds, I used a couple of plastic grocery bags when I did my wheels. Slit them down middle and feed in the wheels. It covered up the calipers and rotors just fine.. The company has a great YouTube channel, dipyourcar.com. Plenty of very helpful tips to go with what you guys have posted up ! Gunmetal gray on the wheels. Will post up pics when I can. Thanks for all the great ideas !!

It doesn't get to 500 degrees inside the housing. You're fine with any generic spray paint to paint your headlights. I've had good luck with Rustoleum Satin Black in my MX5.



As far as plastidip, I wouldn't do it. Because it peels off very easily, and pulling apart the lights...isn't so easy, I'd not want to go through the hassle of tearing the lights apart to touch up the plastidip.

Great, Thanks for letting me know that. When I saw the baking part that kind of scared me to do it but since there is no baking involved I think I will.

Baking the headlights is pretty fail safe because the oven only gets to about 215 degrees. The hardest part about headlight retros is making sure to seal the light back up.
