I'm not familiar with that particular type of glue. Is it sticky or does it flow a bit?
It's similar to Elmers, it CAN be thinned with water to flow . I spread it with a toothpick to cover the lens. It takes about an hour, depending on temp, to go from milky to clear. I bought the Testors cement for clear parts at Michaels.

I'll have to try that on the '90 Chevy C1500 pickup I'm almost done with. Thanks.
I'll be anxiouly waiting to see how yours turns out. My Chevy SS454 pickup is still in its box because I hated the way they did the headlights on it.

If you mix a small amount of Tamiya Transparant Blue, in with the watered down glue mix, it gives the appearance of HID headlights, just an FYI

I use pearl white paint. Thin it to airbrushing consistency and put it on with a brush.
Being thin the chrome will show through.
