Hello Guys and Gals

Excellent news. I was able to open up the Intrepid headlights with 100% success!

I'll let pictures speak for themselves:









clear corner


It took me about 2 hours to carefully take the assembly apart. The plastic housing is very soft compared to the 2G stratus headlight. Taking the plastic reflective assembly that’s in the clear cover was a *****, as it is squeezed in there. Cleaning out the glue from the canal is nerve wrecking.

But to answer the main question, YES YOU CAN TAKE THE ASSEMBLY APART WITHOUT A PROBLEM. Patience is a virtue.

Now before I get hit with PM on how to go about this, please hold on a bit. I will write a How-to in a short bit.

You can address your questions here or through PM.

Thank you,
Luke

I've also been a member over at 2GSS for over a year now and can speak very highly of this guy's work and helpfulness. Glad to see he's decided to do business here.

Thank you thank you guys. I am itching to see how this turns out myself. I almost had a doubt that I might fail on this project, but in all looks like this lamp shall see another day.

looking good, what exactly are you gonna paint black and what will be the purpse of that?

seems like anything near the bulb painted black would get really hot.

I dont want to jump into any fast conclusions but projection would not look very attractive unless someone has creative hands and can make a nice housing to cover the empty space.

The outer plastic assembly is very soft so the projectors might jiggle when going over rough surface. We are talking about a very expensive project here.

We can arrange something like that. I cant give you a price just yet. Lets see how difficult it will be to assemble the lamp together. Taking it apart is not a problem, putting it back is. lol The intrepid lamp has too many removeable parts and putting them back together might be little tricky.

As for 1g trep and cords, hold on tight guys I am going to whip something up. Just hold on.

this lends itself to many custom ideas like etching personalization into the inside of the lenses and such. Thank you sir, thank you.

Quick overview of whats going on. Just to get an full idea of how this will look I put the lamp together for a moment. The lens that I have on this lamp is poor, I have to wet sand it and buff if out. Should look newer.





I am thinking about painting the top surface of the divider between the running lighs and low/high beam. Any thoughts?
