^ The yellow frog tape is less tacky than the blue masking tape, I also usually use the blue masking tape on most projects, let me put it this way, I had to be SUPER  careful when wiping some of the chrome trim with a microfiber as the chrome was wiping off...... :bigeyedsmiley:

 

Anyhow, after a couple of weeks working on them for short periods of time between work and family I got them done..... simple tear apart of aftermarket headlights, painted the main basket black, clear coated , dremeled several areas for projector fitment and done deal, the end result.....

Just a heads up for those of you performing a retrofit project on aftermarket headlights...... If you plan to paint "some" of the chrome inner trim be extremely careful when masking.... I thought I played it safe using the yellow frog tape but the chrome still peeled on certain areas along with the tape......very frustrating......

Decided to start my projector retrofit project today.......... got 1 headlight torn apart, was planning on painting some of the chrome trim in the inner housing but quickly realized the chrome is as fragile as the skull on a newborn........damn Taiwanese manufacturers!
