you have to "bake" them...look in the "installs" tab on top of this webpage under "exterior" and it tells you how to take ur headlights apart.

some people bake them, some use a dremel and then re-glue them

well...the debate isn't really whether to paint the inside or not...its what to paint.

case in point: the guy who makes these lives down the street from me:

yeah i tried that, but once we got my headlights back together they kept getting moisture in them and the body shop that helped me decided to put all this glue crap on them and so they looked totally weird from the outside, it was like big wads of glue holding my lights together. but i had an accident and i had to replace my lights and we didnt take those apart.

^^ safieh...they didn't do that correctly at all.

they should have taped the sides of your headlights with masking tape--obviouisly leaving no more than a 1/4" gap in between where the sides meet" and then slobber the glue all over them. then you peel back the masking tape...what you have is a perfect glue line that doesn't look sloppy at all.

^^ sort of like this. but obviously when the headlight was out and you can mask off the whole headlight
