It took about a month to get the lenses, but it was worth the wait.

Old:


Glass:




Installed:


This one did not seat perfectly. There is a small gap between the glass and the plastic. IIRC, it was fine on the test fit, so that means I either used too much glue or I didn't clean out enough of the original glue.






This one fit perfectly.

looks awesome, we need to get a group buy going for these lol

I tried removing good condition factory ones to put on another set of housings and it was terrible, the glass just cracked off and I gave up before ruining them completely.

Group buy would be great! Do any vendors sell them prepainted with the grey stripe on the side?

I got some plastic ones off ebay from Lithuania I think but now I only see some from Singapore so maybe it was those. I thought they were going to be glass but was happy receive plastic, and they fit perfectly.
