GTA 'look-a-like' headlights [Rep of Ireland]

If Irish members needs a pair of standard 156 headlights GTA'd send me a PM.

Before:

After:

Drivers Side close up:

Passengers Side close up:

I now have a spare pair completed ready for fitting.

€100 for the pair fitted & I'll take yours as a trade-in, assuming they are in good/decent condition

BTW: For €40 I can supply these with New bulbs/lamps:

* 50%+ Main Beam [ H1 x 2 ]

* 50%+ Dipped [ H7 x 2 ]

* Sidelight [Hw6 x 2 ]

Re: GTA 'look-a-like' headlights

BTW NEVER use Silicon sealant of any sort, causes condensation.

Re: GTA 'look-a-like' headlights

rem to be very careful when spliting the old sealant with a stanley knife.

Split the sealant around the lense using a stanley knife:

Remove the lense by unclipping each clip, there are 5:
