    With the weather being better, I've been able to spend sometime polishing the car, trying to achieve that factory finish, but with over 130K on the clock and most of them being motorway miles the front ends got quite a few stone chips.I've taken it to the people who factory colour coded my S-Line D/blades and bumper valances agreed a price and it's there now, but would very much like to change the H/light lenses as well, just to finish it off.
    I' ve found the H/lights on the bay for £55 each inc; del; wondered if it was poss to just get the lenses, if so from where ???

    Hi, I assume you mean the clear headlight cover? if so it's a pig of a job to get it off the headlight because it's a sealed unit. Other members who did the joey mod had to melt the lens with a heat gun and prise it open with a screwdriver. Hours of work. So i wouldn't think anywhere does lenses as a seperate item. I've got some sort of chalky powder in one of my headlights and it's really annoying me. Wish i could just access it and simply wipe it

    .....like i say, I'm assuming you mean the clear outer bit of the headlight. If not, just ignore my babbling.

    Hey Digger, I didn't realise you were local to me. Nice car BTW.

    I was wondering how much you have agreed on to have your front end painted as I need the same. I take it they are in Brum?

    Cheers

    take the lights out when they spray the car and get them to mop the lights for you too, dead easy to do,
