Ricky Bobby will become famous soon enough
I hear you on that - I tossed my OE E53 lights, 2003 made, because of the "permaseal" which was near impossible to get open without hours and hours of baking and labor and razor blades, back in 2014.


Now I go on Lightwerkz website and he is opening Permaseal lights with a needle tipped chemical applicator, Morimoto or TRS came out with a chemical that literally eats the permaseal adhesive so they can be opened.


Really wish I would have had them now that the permaseal can be addressed easier - I still have a slight rotation issue which is barely noticeable on the road, from my retrofit. I have EvoXR projectors though and the better optics and xenon high beam were well worth the effort, using the popular "Spyder" housings which can be found on Ebay (they look like facelift lights)
