I've read a bit about un-yellowing the head lights on EF's, and I was thinking that it seems alot of effort, and a noob like me would probably bugger it up and break something...

And wouldn't they just go yellow again after a while??

Well I was wondering if it's possible to fit EL lights onto the front of an EF? Are they a similar size?

Lol, if you think that a bucket of water and some wet and dry and about 40mins of your time is a lot of effort I pity you if you ever try to replace something on the engine or even rip your dash out! :lol:

Yer good point...

That and $150 seems a bit steep..

Well I'll do that then. I guess when I think about it, it took 12 years to get as yellow as they are, so it's not like I'll be doing it every week.

Meh, I'll just do that :lol:
