thats all i got for now...Ill finish painting tomorrow, and i need to get some super strong epoxy for the halos so they don't go bouncing around inside my headlights, and I also need to get some Meguiars Plastx, which is a plastic polish for the head light lens, so i can clean it while its all part.

Also in the mail are my Greggs mirror block off plates, CRG bar end mirrors and my clear alternatives integrated tail light....my starbucks cred is about to sky rocket :laughing

Lookin good. Not AS good as mine, of course, haha!

Anyways, for real, they look good. You won't have any issues with the epoxy causing a chemical fog in your headlights, will you? I'd make sure they epoxy is 100% cured (not just workable cured) so there's no vapors a few days after you seal the headlights.

Gotta love those stomp pads! I can't ride without em' anymore. I mean, technically I can... but I don't like to!

Also, what city/state are you from?

ok update part 3, I spent my lunch break working on getting the lights back together.

Step 12: remove the tape from the Halo lights and lightly tug on the halos to make sure there not going anywhere.
then place the lens back onto the headlight, and use a hair dryer to head up the Silicone sealant. Im not sure if the Halos could take the heat in the oven....so i didnt chance it.

Step 13: reinstall the lights into the upper fairing-

Step 14: test the lights with a 9v battery...note that these lights are designed to be run on a 12V system so they will be brighter! :teeth

Don't test them with a 9v battery if possible. As you said, they're designed for 12v, and the low-voltage can do damage to the transformer. It's usually ok if you do it quickly, but yeah, avoid it if possible.
