We got some permaseal we're. Finally, gon na do a truck first off. The second thing is that i'm gon na show you how to remove permaseal from these ram headlights. You know i never do trucks.

You know i never do permaseal. I hate this stuff, it's hard. It doesn't make you more money, it's stupid, but everybody always wants to know how to do it. So we're gon na take this lens off.

Then we're going to remove all of the permaseal. You can see that bastard just sticking out right there. This super difficult to remove stuff is way harder to do on trucks and domestics than it is your typical import car. So this video is all about exactly how we're going to do that.

All right, i got some stuff. I want to show you on these lights, but before that i need to introduce my boy john from boosted motorsports. I don't ever do trucks. My guy's got a bunch of trucks.

He needs headlights, we're gon na, do headlight stuff for trucks, for john it'll, be dope. John, how come we're gon na open this light? What's the problem? Well, it is, has haze fog on it and it's on the inside, so we already tried polishing the outside and we can't do anything about it. So we're gon na open it up and put a better lens on it and he asked me: is it really gon na mess up the inside if we polish it and i was like yep but we'll try it? If we try to polish that after we swap it with the clear one, we'll be left with the hazy inside lens and we'll see, if we can maybe make that a little bit better a lot of times, people will stick permaseal headlights in the oven and they'll. Try to follow the advice to do with like an import car where it's got rubber butyl in there and what you can do.

If you want to test it really quick is you could take a heat gun and just heat up right along this edge where we can see the sealant spilling out the edge after i heat it up, i'm going to poke it with this little guy. With this little pick and i'm going to see if i can get it to stretch, because what we should see is the glue, if it's soft should stretch like old bubble gum right. But if it's permaseal, it's just gon na tear, and that means that there's no easy way of removing the lens without actually putting a screwdriver in and kind of prying it away from the clear plastic on here and after that, we have to go back through the Headlight and remove all the original sealant out so that we can have it prepared and ready for the good rubber butyl. The other thing, too, is you don't want to overheat stuff? That's why opening lights with the heat gun, especially permasealed, like you're begging for damage for sure? Okay, so i can see that it's darkening up on this plastic right here.

If i poke into that it seems like. Oh, it's soft right, but look it doesn't stretch all that's gon na happen. If i try to pick into it hard is it's just going to tear? So if i put a little flat head screwdriver in there see how it's actually got a hard tear and it lays right back on itself. It's not stretching at all see that now this stuff is rubber, butyl and you can see it stretches.

So what would it it would look like if we actually had the easier stuff is? We would poke into it like this and then, as it stretches out, see how it it looks like kind of like bubble gum right, but this stuff, it's not going to do. That so that's a side by side of rubber butyl versus permaseal. I'm going to hit this thing with a heat gun, really quick and get these little tabs lifted up. But before i do, the main thing i want to mention is because this has black.

In the background, any imperfections whatsoever they show up as way more apparent, but if all the insides in there were completely chrome the light bouncing off kind of blows out the imperfections in the lens. So if you have lenses that aren't that great, but you have chrome lights, you're, okay, but if you take those lights apart, you paint everything black. You reseal them all of a sudden, you're like. Why are my lenses so ugly? They already were you just couldn't notice.

It first thing that i want to do when i'm going to take the lens off is i want to hit this tab, because i know that this tab is made out of clear plastic. It means it's way more brittle than this black plastic right here, which is going to respond better to heat. It's not going to break super easy if i pry on it, whereas this stuff, if it's not hot enough, it's just instantly going to snap, so i actually want to pry that off the tab by getting it super hot with the heat gun. So the problem is, if you overheat this plastic, it's going to start bubbling up and looking like crap.

It doesn't really matter because no one ever sees it, but i just assume only do what we need to do now that that's not holding the tab anymore. I'll be able to just pull the lens straight off and it won't be trying to hook itself back into place, there's no screws or anything that's holding the actual lens in place, but look right there. You can even see where it's like bubbled up a little bit. That's what happens when you overheat clear plastic: it doesn't respond.

Well, it's completely different than the material. That's on here. Today's video we're here with fly, ride gorilla grip gloves, so it's been in there for roughly 20 minutes and what i want to do is i want to get all of these tabs worked up, and i want to separate the lens from the bucket right here. So i'm gon na have to just kind of push this screwdriver along and get this to separate because while it's hot, it's letting go much easier than if it were completely cooled down right now and then once you've got a point of leverage like if you've got It like halfway around the light is already open.

Then you can you can just kind of use the leverage to open it. This is what i'm gon na do, because i messed up on one side. I already did this on the other. I did not so i'm going to hit these tabs right here with heat matter of fact, i'm going to lay it down, i'm going to hit them with heat, and i'm going to have to stick this back in the oven, because i already missed missed my opportunity To do this ahead of time there we go all right so now that i got that tab lifted up, i'm going to stick this thing back in the oven, yeah look at it separating from the lens, so i'm just kind of rocking it back and forth.

Just enough where the screwdriver doesn't start piercing the sealant and get caught and start like, potentially eating through the plastic or anything. But if i use a pry tool where i want to use, it is right up top where i can really bend this because notice. This isn't breaking right here, but it is allowing me to get to the back side. So once i'm in right here now, the hard part is wow.

I've got to apply some pressure to push this way and that way, at the same time now, if it's not hot enough, this is not going to want to work, and if i haven't pried enough to start this, we're going to have to heat it back up. Even more than we already have stick that dude in there and now i got to work my way around this light, because what i don't want to do is completely deform that channel. So if i just walk my way around it like this, then it's not gon na put too much pressure on it. So now we're at a point where i'm dropping scary pointed stuff towards my toes all right - and this is super important - don't push your luck! I've now created leverage i have the whole top open.

I have everything else that i need to do and if i'm dumb, i'm just gon na force it and then when the lens snaps in half, i'm gon na feel really stupid and john probably won't be too happy about it. But i'm gon na stick. This thing back in the oven, give it one last little run, maybe five minutes in the oven and we'll finish up removing the lens, hey, it's more better, no more days of this i'll i'll do another one back to back, just just to make my video here, But a lot of people would be like. Okay, let's remove these parts, don't stick their fat thumb right on that chrome.

We don't want to do that. This chrome has to stay 100 pristine, so we're gon na try to very s very carefully. Remove it next part of the video is gon na, be removing the rest of the permaseal, but that's not right now, just because it looks cool okay, so i'm gon na set this thing to the side. For now, chris is not exaggerating.

This is the pain in the butt. All right, yeah speak to the people, because these are the people that are gon na be doing this. I know so he he's crying when he saw that it was this kind of rubber. We just took it out of the oven and it's still like, and he said we got ta get it all out.

So it's i feel it cooling down and it's actually slowly getting harder and harder to come out and it'll eventually just rip like that. So once it gets to that point, you can either heat it back in the oven or try to get another little chunk started again. I don't want to do this anymore, going back to hellcat swaps, it's easy! This is what not to do wan na watch. Your buddy fix this headlight lens.

Look all right! Do it again that that's that that's there, okay, do it again! Look a little bit of haze watch! Someone see that a bit of scratch no put in the sun see if you see any scratches he's trying something. Chris says not to do he told him not to do it. This guy doesn't care. I'm a doer dude.

Look at this. Nobody gon na talk about my impressive glue job. Look at that. It's clean finally you're doing something right, stick it in there.

This is a microfiber cloth, this is chrome and everybody that says just wipe. The chrome is an idiot. That's why just small scratches, but you can still see them yeah, you can't oh yeah, that's more scratches and then there's more scratches. This is called the dip.

How long i don't know it might not even work magic, it's actually not chrome. You can see it right there. It's it's a degreaser, that's breaking down the aluminum, because that's actually what you see. So it's actually going into john's nose.

Poisoning. I ran out of battery hi hi boy. Oh, you can still see the ram yeah hi boys hey now we got ta, go wash it off with water, because this is messed up stuff, bad for you, let's still polish it up just a little bit right at the end, just to make sure it came Out half he's using this machine to fill this up. I haven't raised my platform for so 6'3 bent over is not comfortable and yeah, so he's going to fill it up, throw it back in the oven heat it up and then throw the lens on all right.

And then, when i get this corner, all these tabs got to sit right back where they were i'm just tired. I just wanted this video to be over. Do you like them me too yeah all right? Well, i think john likes them. That's the only thing that matters we've got this that we turned into that, and that is pretty cool.

It really does change the look of the truck with all the black trim on there it just instead of having all that chrome inside the headlights, they look pretty sick and you could still see the little ram logo in there. It looks pretty badass. So i'm happy about it. I got oil in the driveway still, but it's all good fully black inserts we've done it.

I put john to work. He did awesome. Watch john's channel he's probably going to have a better, more cohesive story than i do. This was just all over the place.

It was fun, though, so thanks for coming brother. Thank you not bad.

    Hey. I'm just wondering when you paint inside or outside lights do you use any heat-resistant paint or it's just standard paint? Xenon or HID's can be quite hot.

    I really like your videos, bro and now I'm more inspired to open my headlights! I'm just wondering about one thing .. So I wouldn't have a problem if the headlights were glued with permaseal and I glued them with butyl, right?

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Monkeh says:

    Cardboard box "Oven". I feel your pain. I tried chemical ways, Mechanical ways, but best is a Cardboard box "oven" with the headlight sat on a few boxes to lift it off the floor, Hot air gun on low for 25 mins. Permaseal SUCKS!

    I made my first set of custom headlight a few weeks ago, and they were from my 2011 ram 1500. It was a pain to open them. But doable
