    Yosh I just called that company again and they said they have a set of black broken headlights for a 2005. That's what they told me when I went to get the clear lens.

    Give them a call when you get a chance and see if you can work them down to the $40 that I payed.

    After you trimmed the shrouds, and mounted them, can you see if you look the right way, the area's trimmed? The way I have mine now I imagine you will be able to see where it's been trimmed.

    Also what kind of epoxy did you use, and what size bolts? I need to get a few more parts still.

    I found a ebay company that was selling black headlights and clear headlights and called to see if by any chance they had any broken lights that were damaged during shipping. Got lucky and they had a black set with the clears in them.

    Sorry I can't help you there, Yosh was the brains in the operation, I just get to enjoy the quality work. You have to look REALLY REALLY hard to notice anything behind the shrouds the fitment is amazing.
