    I have black housing headlamps and corner lamps. The corner lamps have black trim but I have a chrome grill. Also, both markets have condensation in them so I may fail MA state inspection. I have a set of OEM I can use but want the dark look. They also have to have the orange lens for Mass. any idea where to find them? I’ve looked on eBay, interwebs, Amazon, etc. and cannot find them alone without headlamp assemblies.

    thanks!!!!

    Buy the ones that work and paint the insides :notsure: or you mean tinted lenses? You can just remove the ones with condensation and use a blow drier or even just leave the bulbs out over night to get rid of it.

    There’s a reason they have water in them. I’ll probably install the regular ones for now and try to reseal them but I’ve not had good luck doing that in the past. They are a clear lens with black inside. But I would also like them to match the chrome grill. 372B18A7-B8C8-43A5-9CF2-ACD2585C4296.jpg

    If you press enough silicone into the seams you’ll make sure there’s no condensation or so little you could dry it out right before the inspection. That was mainly my point - not that they shouldn’t get replaced since you want the look to match.

    When u buy new ones silicone the edges with blue rtv or something else. Did that with my spyder ones from fleabay and haven't had an issue. It's worth the 20-30 min to do em both

    I cannot find them anywhere though... I wonder if the 99-2000 ones will fit. I knw before that they were different. I see plenty for those years online that are black and would be a good match.

    You can make anything “fit” with modification.

    But no, they won’t really work.

    Bought those- they aren't smoked. I bought from that exact seller. Pics make them look like it but they aren't

    I used that before - it's a good product and gets you a good amount of tint. It does fade even when clear coated over though. Using a 2k UV resistant clear *may* increase how long it lasts though.

    I live in Mass- no tinted lenses- that’s why I’m looking for the clear lens with the black reflector and orange reflector on the side

    That's what I thought you meant in the OP, but going back to what I said, buying silver housings and painting them black and resealing them could probably be the way to go for you. There's 5 million-ish head and corner light styles on ebay, so who knows, you may find exactly what your'e looking for, but if you can't, this could work possibly with silver housings:
