Planning to order online since the price difference is quite high @ 700/- ; Let's see!

Yeah. I've been wanting them for a long time now. I keep prying off the car's plastic trims by covering the flat-tip screw drivers and knives with masking tape so it doesn't damage the plastic. I couldn't find these here in India so got these.

Took more than a month to arrive due to the crawling postal department but in the end worth it.

Got a basic heat gun from eBay:

Tools for a DIYer-wp_20141021_21_58_30_pro.jpg

Used my Payback points and got it for free. Cost was Rs. 12xx inclusive of shipping.

Incidentally, bought the same gun from Amazon a week back. Reason - a DIY projector installation on a friend's Ikon. Next up is my Figo :-)

Be careful with the heat guns... On full power, those things are very fierce! They can burn wood, let alone skin!

Hey even I bought it for the projectors DIY.

How did it go through on the Ikon? Was it easy to pry open the headlight lens after exposing it to heat?

Yes, the low temperature setting was enough to pry it open. The installation came out pretty well. It was a 2003 Ikon and we were initially worried that the projector may not have enough space to fit in. It turned out not to be a problem. The left projector is a bit misaligned (tilted clockwise). Need to fix that and do beam alignment. Will put up a thread if possible with pics. Brand used by the way was Genome.

Sorry folks for going OT - back to the tools discussion.

You can get them on SP road. A couple of hundred meters after entering SP road there are electric and electronic shops. Almost every one has them.

Ebay has lots of them

Autotrends has them
