    Custom headlight thread

    I’m going to be breaking open my headlights on my 2017 300 in a couple weeks and just wanted to ask around and see if anyone has any tips or tricks with the 300 headlights, weather to use an oven, dremel, or a heat gun? Also if anyone knows the proper size halo ring to use on our projectors?

    I used the oven on 250 for 7 minutes but I never could get them to reseal properly...never again

    Did you accidentally bend the housing, Or you just can’t seal it off enough to keep the moisture out?

    Why would you want to mod the headlights? Mine on my '18 300S are awesome. But I may have the optional ones as they turn with the steering wheel, have auto-highbeams, etc.. They are one of the best headlight systems I've had on 30+ vehicles.

    And modifying stuff is the fun part...

    I have a couple of threads on here that explain the process of opening and resealing after mods have been down. I'll find the links when I get home from the office...

    If you can't get the oem seal to 'seal' try going around the meeting edge with Goop or something similar (you can tape it off if you want it real nice and neat like paint.) We did that to a set of lights a few years back off a Lincoln and they never leaked again after and you couldn't see the seam we did once the lights were installed...

    I know the older LX lights used butyl which is easier to separate. The newer lights I believe use permaseal which is a little more difficult to work with. The housing is prone to cracking with permaseal.

    I can attest to this. Every set of headlights I’ve ever done, I don’t reseal them with the rubber butyl, just a bunch of Silicon. Never had a problem with condensation or anything.
