got up early this morning and started pullin my front bar off, 6 hours later it was all back together, new indicators and headlights in, gone are the yellow headlights and moisture filled indicators. Looks horn! Theres pictures in my gallery, of the yellow headlights up close, then a front on picture of my car later on in the day with the newy's in. theres also a pic of the halfway point, looks hideous!!!!

awesome stuff
youd be suprised on how much the headlights can improve the general look of the car!
New ones make the car look a lot more modern and have found most people who clean their lights dont get them as good as new, or are too bad to be fixed dramatically.

IMO , i like the stock lights better on a more modded fords, and the round lights on stocker cars.

I dont like the round lights on sexy fords , i dont know why.

went to autobarn, got some 2,000 grad wet and dry abrasive paper, went home, dipped it in water, rubbed each headlight for a while, then washed it off, repeated that until clear headlights. since then i've fitted headlight protectors, and in the last year they;ve stayed clear
some poeple say you should poilsh them or cut and polish them or what ever, but i found no need
and i didn't get them looking as if they're new, i mean it'd be unreasonable to expect that from 10 year old headlights!
