Thanks Wayne. Today, I'm going to try to do the RS headlight stuff. Get things cleaned up and test fitted.
I didn't want to go to work today, so I had a case of anal glaucoma

Default RS Hideaway headlight stuff

Started messing with the headlight items. Luckily I was able to source complete OEM headlight assemblies from a friend. The OEM stuff is much better than aftermarket. I tried just using an aftermarket bellcrank, and was having issues, so I can imagine what other fitment issues I would have with all aftermarket parts.

You can tell it's an aftermarket grille. Even with the outside lined up perfect the inside area is crooked. Guess I'll have to trim the grille a little.





That's pretty close. Going to need some fine tuning.

Default Cleaning and painting the RS headlight assemblies

Today I disassembled the assemblies, sandblasted and painted the parts. I have new bushing kits for them, although the original bushings are in great shape.

Check all the holes some of mine were a little out of round and gave me trouble,if they give you more problems.
They look nice all painted up.

The holes are in good shape, luckily. Even the long shoulder bolt doesn't have any wear on it.

It's just 2 stage. House of Kolor Lime Mist. I'm not that talented to do a 3 stage, unless you want to count the sealer before color as a stage
