I had my headlights out to replace a burnt-out bulb.   I decided the rock guards needed some touch-up, along with the retainer clips.   Then I noticed that the only chrome on the whole Jeep was the on the headlight trim rings.  Buh-bye!

Update 6/27/06

I found I needed to replace a burnt out bulb.  Two years had lapsed since the last time.  The headlight doors and headlight guards needed to be repainted too.

First I disassembled the headlamp doors and guards.  Then I removed the old headlamps.  I set the good headlamp aside and labeled it "OK" for emergency spare.  I put the burned out one into the package and discarded it.

Then I laid out the headlamp doors and guards and also the hardware that holds the retainer and doors in place.

I repainted everything with Satin finish Krylon Fusion.

Then I put the new headlamps in while the paint dried.
