cheap altern' for carrelo headlights
i did have all 4 orig head lights which suprised the local alfa workshop but now one has been hit with a stone and got a bulls eye crack.
here in australia im having trouble finding head lights at 5.5" [5.25"?] to fit my 116 GTV till someone told me a cheap altern' [aus$15] that one of his friends did for his GTV6.
just chip all the glue or what ever that holds the lense to the back shell away from another 5.5" light [not the alfa one coz you might need the practice to learn what not to do to smash anything] and seperate the two.
do the same to the alfa HL and glue [silicone? ] the new lense into the alfa shell. make sense?
well it make sense to me and i had a little bit of a look at the orig and i do see the black glue or something holding it. will the mounting gear still be intact with the rear shell or just glue that on with the lense
has anyone tried this because this sonds better than a couple hundered dollars.
any other altern's?
