    yellow/amber headlights/lenses/lense covers - where?

    I've been looking around for a pair of yellow headlights or lense covers for my inboard headlights on the wagon

    something like this:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BMW-VW-S ... ccessories

    or these:


    Anyone know where to get something like this from the US or the UK? I've been hunting around the net and can't seem to find a site to order them from (I don't think those BMW/VW lights will fit my car either, thats why I haven't bought them)

    Basically I want something like an old Lucas or Marchal or Cibie light.

    If you have any junkyards nearby that cater to European cars, there's always the early to mid-80s Mercedes fog lights?





    They fit most all cars that use standard 5.75" high beams. :tu:

    Used them in a 510 I had awhile back...

    Hmmm I may have to order some from Euro land.
    There's no merc's here with yellow headlights, they're illegal.

    cheers for the heads up though.

    Or you can do like what I did to mine, find yourself a candy yellow spray can, prep the high beams by cleaning them thoroughly and lightly scuff them with red scotch brite (although I don't know if that actually did anything to the surface since the glass is hard) and spray away! I find 2 coats is more perfect for them. This is the result:



    I have that for a few months and they still held up fine. No chips or anything yet.

    Hazwan, I absolutely love that sticker on the upper corner of your windshield. Made me laugh.

    I bought some yellow tint spray off ebay.
    That had a real rich yellow colour to it.



    Probably easier, and cheaper than searching around the world for a set of yellow lights

    Try going to a Michael's or one of those art & craft stores and buy a spray can of yellow stained glass window paint by krylon. It works well, I used it on a friend's headlights and the results were excellent. Plus, it's cheaper than the Japanese Vans spray can.
