hey all

got a pair of these off a mate - they won't fit his EF XR headlamps, only my EL XR front bar - they have 'DRIV OUTER' and 'PASS OUTER' on them - its a plastic protector w/ a rubber surround, and a red 'XR' at the bottom - only have the outers, not the ones for the high-beams - anyone else seen these before, or know where to get 'em? :?

They look like the Headlight Protectors for the AU Series XR's.
I'm pretty sure they weren't made for the EF/EL's.

no they don't - they clip right up onto the glass pretty much.

A bloke in the NSW FPV club has them on his EL XR8 and the appear to fit to the light openings on the front bar.
They could be attached to the glass itself as there is not much room between the light and bar.
I will have to chase up a set now.
