    Need some headlights ASAP any kind.

    well I got burned on the lights I traded a TW member for.

    It's the 1st real rain here and they each have a ton of water in them.
    pulled em off to maybe re seal and noticed there are holes drilled in the side for drainage!!! afraid to turn them on :mad: they will fry.

    So, if you have any headlights to spare, PM me.

    I shouldn't really say the name. But you could find out who if you wanted to know.
    I believe they were traded to him, but he also told me "no leaks"

    why not, call TC2008 out, spare the rest of the people that might do business w/ what seems to be a shady guy...your obviously not the only one that has had a problem w/ him...

    shoot, to say no leaks, and then have HOLES DRILLED IN THE LIGHTS...thats shady...

    I resealed one, put about a half tube of silicon caulk on it too.:D
    gunna do the other one and test em out.

    thanx for the replies, I stil may need a set I don't really like the halo's and projectors anyways.

    Buying used stuff is a gamble, he may have very well thought they didnt leak. Now we know

    I have a set of halo projectors and I drilled holes in the lights to reduce fogging (in a very inconspicious place) and I have no leaks.

    Must have been the seals. Dude - that sucks.

    I have a stock set boxed and ready to ship. Yosh2000 sold me a sweet set of BHLM. Are you wanting to borrow or buy? I am good either way, as they are just sitting in a box.
