Retro fitted headlights

I am thinking about selling my retro's. I have not installed them and its not a big deal if I dont sell them. The only reason I am thinking about selling is because I am thinking about painting my bike since summer is coming up. I know I limited my market by painting the shrouds white and black but I think its very unquie and stands outs. They are 6K lights with halo's. I already have HIDS and I didnt need to order new balast's so if you have HIDS already then you dont need to buy the ballast's but if you dont then you will need some. I would like to get 550 for the lights. Like I said I dont need to sell so no thread haters or people that like to bash on other peoples post like some have done to me in the past. Pm me with any questions. The back of a light has a small hole in the plastic from shipping. If anyone isconfused I bought another set of lights off another member so I could still drive my truck. Will post picture when I get home.

I'm interested.

What shape are the light housings in (new/slightly used/used/etc)?

Can you show a better picture of the seal job done to them?

Ive wanted a set for a while, but I don't wanna cook mine off for fear of scorching mine.

x2, JB Weld that sucker or Epoxy with some mesh over it for strength (fiberglass mesh or even something as simple as a piece of t-shirt material, just something to hold the shape while the resin hardens).

Nothing wrong with other side besides light scratches on the lense.

Don't understand what your asking by socket wobble/ball.

OEM housing.

The hole and crack will not effect the alignment. No ballasts but if you have HIDS already you can use that ballast. If you don't have a ballast I could come off some on price.

I keep seeing 1 side (passenger)

Any ball/socket wobble?

Oem or aftermarket housing?

So, 1 broken housing on alignment screw area, no ballasts, h1's, and u want 550 right?

What was used to seal inside and out?

Also, I only asked 800 for my retrofitted FX/R's with 2 sets of genuine phillips bulbs, 2 new morimoto ballasts, a like new wire harness, in brand new 2011 oem smoked housings that were flawless.....and that was when the market was NOT flooded with retrofits.

What's ur rock bottom price?
I thought you bought Tim's?
