a little bit of boxster cooking this turkey season

so i replaced a turkey with some litronics in the oven

started with this


then off to the oven, 20 mins at 200 degrees


and used these gloves after they were taken out, a friend worked at F1 for a while, and they were given these heat proof gloves,up to 800 degrees i believe, perfect for porsche cooking hehe


and ended up with this


happy thxgiving

I'm a little slow. What exactly did you do and why? You melted your cracked headlight lense back together to eliminate the crack?

Garage
Did you repair the cracked lens or replace it? If you replaced the lens, what's the PN, I'll just do this to my Amber's instead of replacing the entire headlight.

the lens is 'glued' with silicone to the housing, so you have to heat it up to get it loose, and then you can pry it off.

Oh no, are you gonna paint these silver too? Haha.

Man, this is a really interesting thread. I have a set of Litronics from my old front end that were cracked in my valet stand situation. They're sitting in my garage taking up space. I was gonna list them on eBay cracked, or part them (ballast, control box thing, etc.). The part you just replaced is the only thing that's wrong with them. Hmm, but I guess I'd still have to come up with a donor pair of lenses.

Good Job!

I'm glad it all worked out for you. I know you won't resist working on it during the holidays.
