AIO headlights?

anyone ordered All In One headlights for 88 body style recently?

looking into getting some, but i don't want anything crazy i would like to keep somewhat of the factory look in an all in one setup. i want to have the smoked look, whether bought that way or bought clear and done myself.

i looked around AM and Ebay but i haven't had any luck so far...

also thinking about replacing the taillights as well... i think what i have is the LX model tails now not sure.. want to go smoked there too of course. i think she would look mean as hell all blacked out.. and even better in the future when i get a new sonic blue paint job with the black accents

any ideas are appreciated.. thx guys

Re: AIO headlights?

I've never been a fan of the one-piece headlights. I haven't seen a set that actually fit correctly.

I went with OEM replicas from latemodel and didn't have any fitment or wear issues at least in the last 2 years they've been on the car.

Re: AIO headlights?

i took a look on latemodel restoration and saw the 6 piece set in ultra smoke. i like them but it got me to thinking...

my current lights are in good physical condition, but one of the headlights had been changed before i bought the car, so one is clear and one is yellowed and holds water. if i reseal it and use the nite shades spray, will the difference in the clear and yellow show enough to matter?

Re: AIO headlights?

you would be amazed how well a headlight can be restored if its on the outside~ just needs a little TLC with the right items

Re: AIO headlights?

some can use sand paper not sure how fine, then plastic polish~ but if yours are clear coated that might not work.
