Re: headlights

Nice that will look better than stock ones in my opinion. Have you tried a restore kit on yours? If cloudiness is the issue that will fix em. Then sell em on E-bay.

Re: headlights

They look good but beware of ebay. I bought some smoked ones and while they are ok, the passenger side doesn't sit quite flush (barely can tell) to the body and the plastic coating on the headlight is starting to peel. While I am happy with what they have done so far, I know they are only going to last me another year while I have only had them a year.

Re: headlights

I have order from these guys before. I got my fog lights from them. The cloudyness on my headlights are bad. there are some deep pits and scratches on them. for 100 bucks i dont expect much just as long as they look better then what i have.

Re: headlights

i want an OEM headlight for my drivers side since mine is pealing... I dont want a knock off due to issues they seem to have plus I would have to buy two.. it just sucks the OEM ones are so expensive.

Re: headlights

world of wheels is inside the BJCC but perhaps we could get an ME.com semi meet up in the area and go to the event which I will be at, good place to hang out and see some interesting cars and talk to car people etc.

you can view my album for pics from last year, we had 6 cars hope to have more this year. Cars have to be non stock and CLEAN very clean... so its a good way to clean the car for the show season lol.

Re: headlights

wax will do it im sure, just dont ignore them when cleaning the cr, same goes for tailights and 3rd brake light, and trim on the car etc etc (cant wax some of that stuff but still needs protecting)

Lights can be waxed and the trim usually works with Mothers Back to Black or some type of sealer.

Re: headlights

Looks great man...way better than before. Yah keeping lights, trim and fender wells clean is just a good habit. I hate seeing a really clean paint job and then ugly faded trim right around it.

Re: headlights

all you have to do next time is wet sand the headlights with about 600 grit sand paper, clean the surface and then spray them with clear coat. it will make them look almost new again. it's cheaper than a kit.

Fenderwells drive me crazy. If your going to clean your car do it correctly! clean the running board under the car on the sides too!

Completely agree. Some car dealers and car washes here seem to be amazed that you can restore the black trim really easy. Forever Black FTW

Yah a lot of people don't clean the underside of the rocker panels. The exposed side under the door is nice and clean, but run your hand on the underside of the panel and it's like touching sandpaper
