Anyone seen these lights installed?

Looks like it might be a relativley simple job, but if thier genuine Ford lights, there worth that second hand anyway.

Im considering it, but want to make my area comfortable first!

these guys buy the lights & modify them themselves.....all that is done is the lense is taken off the light, then the sides, top & bottom of the glass is blacked out...the bloke who had my car before me done it himself...its 100% legal as it dusnt alter the brightness or direction of the light (ive passed the pits with them)....if it was me, id be doin it myself and buy something nice with $240...

Also be careful the lights in the pictures always look like brand new, you will get used ones back, and some are more used then others if you get me :D

Amen to that brother. I bought a set for the ED off that very same bloke. They were old second hand ones with rusty electrical terminals. Hed sprayed the reflectors with chrome paint and then the outer bezels with black. Got black overspray over the whole lot (including inside the glass) so I basically had to redo it all myself anyway. Do it yourself and save a bundle, very easy to do. I just wish I had realised earlier how easy they were to do before I forked out my hard earned. :(

I have a set of these on my EF. I do not suggest to get them from this bloke. Some of the tabs were broken, notably the ones that the blinker bolt in to. I thought nothing of it at first, so I ignored it. 2 days later, my blinker fell out along the freeway. Another issue that I have had with them were that the first time you switch them on, they let off a lot of smoke. It was really worring at first, but it only lasts for the first 5 mins.

Do yourself a favour and do your own. I wish I had.
