Hey dexi did you make a thread for your retrofit? What oven temp did you use and for how long? Going to tackle it in the morning using eagle eye housings and morimoto h1 mini 7.0s

Any recommendations on a brand? How many even coats? Never thought of this

Just get exterior clear coat. I always use duplicolor because thats what they sell locally here. I always do 2-3 light coats. If you put a lot, the clear will show spider cracks after a while

Thanks man. I'll have to look into this.

I was going to do my retro this weekend but tackled my sound system upgrade instead.

I think I did 300, but I'm pretty sure you can go up to 325-350 with no issues. It's pretty easy to melt the sealant. I didn't make a thread on it.
