    Sorry Dave , I changed the whole headlights for the all chrome ones from California which come with angel eye rings fitted. I cheated. Easy option.

    My guess would be that you have to open the stock headlights and install the rings.
    Then you have to seal it up again....
    Dont know how easy that is to do but would imagine it takes time and some skill.

    Dave, it's easy to do, just pop the unit in the oven to soften the glue, the remove the front cover and fix in the rings, may need a small hole drilling to thread wiring etc then stick back together by warming up again. The important thing is to get the right diameter rings, otherwise it will look stupid.

    I did the same route as Tony, I thinking looks nicer,but for oem look, can't be beaten.

    haha nice feedback guys, thanks, so what you are saying is nobody had the balls to try it? or everyone has too much money to bother? :) good call on the ring size Zed, that is important so must measure the light diameter. so yea, looks like I will be giving this a shot....
    so oven on to 900 degrees and bake for 3 hours yea? ;-)

    Don't forget one other option Dave. If you fit complete lights you can easily sell your old ones to offset some of the cost of the new units.

    I know that doesn't seem maybe like much but I put them in my shed for 2 years and I thought what ever I get for them would buy me something else. More stickers ?=))
