Games Lexus led lights strip

i bought the LED strips to put on the headlights. I don't want to glue them on the outside, because it looks ghetto and someone might steal them.

Does anyone know where I can find the instruction to put them inside, I heard you need to remove the bumper or the lights, not sure.
I have an 07 lexus is 250

Here is where i bought it and

You have to remove the lights, bake them, insert and install the leds, rebake the lights make sure you do a good job, then install them back on the car and hook the new leds to 12v.

Did someone say headlights? Yes we do them and do them well!!!

Just like IS300SOON said it^^^ you have to bake your lights, open them up install them on the inside, and then bake to put them back together. I did it on mine, but i ran seperate wires to a switch, cause i want to have the capability to turn them on and off as I please.

here is the link I found and used.

DIY INFO: Black Headlight MOD! - Club Lexus Forums

and a video


the LED strips i bought had 3M adhesive on the back but the front also had an adhesive on it, or at least it felt like they did, and once i had the headlights open i placed it against the lens on the inside, they stuck to it and have been on for almost 2 months now, haven't had a problem, run the wires through the housing, you will notice a little black rubber boot behind the headlight, remove that and you will see an opening where you can run the wires through. I also painted my housing since i had the lights opened up. PM me if you have any questions.

Do NOT remove the boot, that is designed to sit there for a reason. There is a foam filter in it, this filter helps with regulating the heat inside the headlight.

Yes, good point, I completely left that out, when i said remove it, i meant just while you run your wires, make sure to put the boot back on! Thank you is300soon! good catch.
