DIY Help.....

I'm curious as to if anyone has personally installed their oracle fog light halos and afterburners in the housings and if so how difficult was it on a scale of 1-10?

I Appreciate the input in advance

I'm shipping the headlights to aacstyle for installation of the colorshift halos but if its not TOO difficult ill just install the afterburners and fog lights myself to save some $$

I did my afterburners. It was quite simple really. I do suggest taking the back bumper off. Makes things much easier and takes maybe 12 mins. After you cut open the first tail light, the rest are easy. Make sure you seal them well and give them plenty of time to dry.

How long would be appropriate for drying time? 1-2 days for safe measure?

Amy suggestions on the brand/type of sealant?

i did this. its difficult to do it perfectly if you are cutting the edges for the first time. try to cut quickly and accurately. The longer you take to do it, the more itll melt and come out ugly.

when letting it dry, literally tape it as tight as you can make it. and keep it out over a night or 2. Mine was pretty dry within 4 hours. be very careful when putting the sealant on because if it touches any of the lights, they will burn. You also have to make sure you put enough on so that they are 100% closed or else water will get in and short the lights out and fog up the lenses.

good luck buddy

Luckily I have a spare tail light I had to replace so I will be able to practice on that one first

I would personally give at least 4 hours of drying time. I think I did almost 6. I also used locktite brand silicone. Worked perfectly.
