No condensation issues, which i strange as they used to get condensation in them when i first bought them.

Mabs:

They are Depo headlights, so no, not genuine.

awesome. this might be the way to doing a phase1 set, same with indicators. hmm i shall have a look tomorrow


I had 'black masks' on my old phase 1. Not intentional though...

The silver reflective part faded and was dark plastic underneath. Looked good so i never bothered getting new ones LOL

Also with the Phase 1 lights it will be alot easier to remove the lense as its not bonded

Would explain the Metal clip, and different front reflector. The valeo ones go further down iirc??

Anyhow, fancy borrowing me your oven too. I'll spray mine astor i thinkNinja

I like the matt black bonnet badge Thumbs up I think I may have a go at that. As it the only chrome thing on the car and looks a bit odd. Smile

Your not screwed just means you have to fork out for black mask cibies instead.

Is that really all black masks are? I've never seen a set with my own eyes. I presumed there was some kind of tint to the lens?

I just sold some black masks to Mabz, they are exactly the same as mine.

Its the reflective bit thats black, not the lens
I will buy some valeos and do them soon as the valeo lights are a better fit and sit more flush to the wings Smile

You only spray the reflective part which does fook all but look shiny Smile

I don't know exactly what they do, but it just looks like they spray the shiny bit like i did ?
