    My God !! they ripped open the headlight using a welding torch :eek: crazy. But looking at their skill i must appreciate that they dint mess it up. Would have loved the sealing video too.

    My headlights were opened using a heat-gun + DIY oven box method. Also there are channels in headlights through which if you insert a long tool you can push the glass.

    Hows the end result? any snaps?

    Nice DIY Thomas but the keychain is not looking good. Get the Abarth Scopion and make it keychain. It will look great.

    appreciate ur opinion.. the red became bloody red once the resin hardened.. personally feel light shades would have been better...
    i can't say i din't like it..may be bcoz of the effort i but in.hehe...i do like it but not as much as i hope it would turn out..

    scorpion key chain was the idea that lead to this diy.. this is just mark1..
