C6 headlights and lenses removed

I removed the headlights from my car this weekend without removing the fenders or front facia, took me about 20 minutes each; I can assist anyone with some pointers if someone needs. I also removed my clear lens off the buckets; this took about 1.5 hours each. This is all very doable.

Re: C6 headlights and lenses removed

The question I have is why did you remove your light assemblies and the lens? Is this required to change the bulb?

Re: C6 headlights and lenses removed

no not required to change the bulb; this can be done from inside the wheel wells, you will need to remove tire to change lamps. I am adding HALO to the headlights.

Re: C6 headlights and lenses removed

Great work! Man you must have alot of skill and patience. I did the same project with an older Z4 to delete the amber signal and it took me the whole weekend to get it right to my satisfaction. Will never try that again. This time I contacted Mike Yeager.... He did an awesome job and color matched the chrome trim too.

Re: C6 headlights and lenses removed

Oracle / Advancedautomotive is where I got these. I looked at several different and did not like the LED that was available, did not have that smooth round look so I went with the cold cathode and they really look great, I am doing a photoshoot this weekend and should have better pics.

Re: C6 headlights and lenses removed

I did this on my Ford truck to paint the inner bezel. Had to bake in oven to release the glue. Very aggravating and time consuming! How did you do the Z's? Thanks! Looks great by the way!

Re: C6 headlights and lenses removed

I have a 07 Z06. Im looking at the white halo's from Oracle. Foglights too. Did you buy direct from Oracle? I noticed in your pic the Halos were on ,but the daytime ambers were not. Are they off when the headlights are on? Or did you disable them?
