    The resin tooling plugs will take more time unfortunately, I ordered the materials last week but with all these bank holidays the order' going to take a while. Not to worry, plenty to keep me busy in the workshop. Currently I'm having to make a sanding 'cone' as I couldn't find one with the correct angle on the Web. The obvious advantage of making your own tooling is you can custom make it!

    I'm ready for my new lights now Turk, my recent MOT test came back with a headlight advisory (cloudy lens' affecting beam pattern), I've done a temporary fix with toothpaste, better but not ideal. With the dark nights / mornings coming in now, I am ready for my new ones

    Got a picture?
    I've been in contact with the Taiwanese Trupart business who make these DRL style lights.. My enquiry was along a similar line. I've got to set up a meeting with their UK distributor when I'm back.

    Greygate is good, as are any paint cutting compounds - G3, T-cut

    With a mop it takes me about 2 minutes to do both lights on the missus' toyota and about 10 minutes to clean the mess off the rest of the car.

    Problem is, now the surface is gone on the lights, the interval between polishing has fallen steadily from 12 months to about 3.


    Activ - I'd be interested in what you or Turk come up with in solution to this problem as the experts can't solve it and I can only see that some home brewed plastic solution aint going to last as well - it was the stumbling block for me on the headlight project and the reason I stopped.

    Mr Nozzle - love your optimism, don't hold your breath.....

    Tin hat on. I sometimes think people are missing the fact that you have a 90's vehicle and therefore 90's quality lights. You don't see the vintage and military folks trying to upgrade 1930's and 40's lights to get the beam and lighting effect of a modern vehicle . People used to "relay" the lights on golfs in the 80's so they could use bigger bulbs (homemade loom upgrade I assume). That's as much a lighting upgrade as you need in my opinion.
