black lights

I just purchased these from Amazon.

Made by depo so dot/sae approved. The pair on ebay you are looking at are not, but only if that matters to you. Also it is much easier to return items from Amazon.

My friend is running the DEPO versions, no problems yet and they look great.

I am interested in these. How is the light output compared to the OEM lights? It would be cool if you could install a Depo light on one side and your old OEM light on the other and turn them on and take a pic of the light output on a wall.

I read up on these ebay ones and all i read is bad reviews on the light output.

they hold up great, you just got to seal them up good. I had one light build up some moisture one winter.

I got them too. Yes , make sure you seal them with silicone before you install them. I didn't and one fogged up inside. Had to take off and dry it out and sealed it up. No problem since.

i had both that leaked a LOT of water inside, like a puddle in there, i removed, used a hair dryer and put them in the oven at 250 for 5 mins, then completely sealed the outside edge, and a shot of silicone around where the turn signal bulb sits, just to be sure, so far so good, they look really nice
