    What's the least destructive way of removing the buckets? I installed OEM Hella HIDs last weekend, and spent some time trying to image how I'd remove the buckets.

    Hi Hoover

    How will the better material result in a better product? I'm really interested in a material that is optically better, in terms of less distortion of light passing through...

    they are glued in, so there's very little you can do to not damage them. more importantly, you have to be careful and try to minimize the amount of fiberglass that comes off while pulling out the cover.

    the factory installs them from the underside of the clam, glues them in place and applies a sealer on top.

    under the sealer, it looks horrible and fitment isn't all that great, lots of trimming.

    when we install them, we do so from the top side.

    I do not know what the factory uses for lens cover material, but it's probably something cheap to keep costs down. My guess is the cheaper materials are very porous, and creates a moisture fog which damages paint and clarity.

    The new covers are polycast acrylic, with a clear coat which adds to the U.V. protection and is more scratch resistant.

    This makes me sleep better knowing you can replicate Rossion headlight covers in case something happens.
    Thanks Hoover!

    Can you briefly explain how? The lenses are larger than the aperture in the clam so i'd have thought they have to be installed from the inside...

    Do you remove the bucket when replacing the lens?
