everything was painted satin black. It was the closest I could find to matching my grille.

Finally got around to breaking my lights open. Was much easier than I expected. I did 260 for 25 on the first one and broke them apart in 5 min. The second I did at 260 for 15 min and it took me no more than 3 min to rip them apart. I think next time around, I won't go as hot.
All that old sealant looks like it'll be fun to get out.

Did a retrofit on the 2013 HID lights about a year ago, and decided to open them to freshen up the look and fix some alignment issues, never really checked to see if the two beams lined up and after a year of slightly crooked cutoffs I decided to fix it. Lights came apart easy, but I was really surprised with what I found. The reflector bowl of the projector had some black residue on it, and upon further inspection, I realized it was the chrome finish which was singed and peeling off. This is for the Evox-R projectors from TRS, and I was wondering if anybody had seem something similar/ if this is effecting light output.

I am running 55w morimoto ballast with morimoto bulbs. only thing I can think of is 55w is too hot for these projectors?Click the image to open in full size.

Yeah 55w would most likely be the issue.
