DIY Headlight Harley Mod completed...pictures inside

First I would like to thanks Tylus he was very helpful with this Mod, thanks for all the tips.
I also installed some Raptor style LED's behind the grille. Here are some pictures.

sorry, but no. yours are cast as a unit and can't be seperated like the 05+ style

sorry, still using them

The knock-offs are $120 or so on eBay. Seal them up good with silicone before installing and they last.

I used Krylon Fusion Flat Black, that was so hard to find...You cant buy spray paint in Chicago its illegal. I went to three different Ace stores and the last one I went to had it in stock, everywhere else was sold out or they dont carry the Krylon Fusion in Flat Black.
Thanks again for the help Tylus.
