Re: rear lights mk1

Look in teh D pillar at the very bac of your car on the inside, one above teh parcel shelf and one below, up top there is a plastic cover each side whcih needs removed to reveal a 19mm crimp-bolt, unscrew this with a socket, if you dont have a socket, the wheel wrench in your spare fits it. as you undo teh second of each side, hold the light unit to prevent it from faling out, i mean, its neary impossible if its been that long because it'll be well gunkd in there and teh angle they are in makes them hard to come out, but better safe than sorry.

Thanks

A and R

Re: rear lights mk1

Thinking of getting these, they look nice and sell dirt cheap as they stopped making them now

Re: rear lights mk1

smokeyjoe, they are awful like every other boy racer has. Saying that, they are very cheap, and if they're to your taste, why not

Re: rear lights mk1

Meanies, I like em. BTW they didn't sell. There were a better pair on there with chrome backing rather than black, I liked those better but listing ended before I could post it.

Re: rear lights mk1

right i was all set up and ready to smoke my rear lights today, washed em down with meths and then rinsed em with warm water and dried em off. covered the shed (lol its as close as i get to a garage at uni ) with newspaper and gave the lights a light misting with savage tail light tinting spray. all good so far, went away came back half an hour later, not much had happened so gave them a thicker spraying and left em again to go into town, came back an hour and a half later, and shock horror they were basically white! all clouded up and basically ****ed! i proceded to shout expletives and took em inside and washed em a thousand times with more meths but to no avail... here is the damage:



so it seems tomorrows job is to go out and buy some wet and dry and get rubbing! so basically what im asking is, what the **** happened!?! and how can i stop it happening when i do it again tomorrow?

cheers for ur help, godders

Re: rear lights mk1

It seems that you havnt prepared the surface correctly, athough your method is correct. Many people have this problem for some reason, and i think it might come down to the type of polish that is used on the car. 1200 will take it off yes, but after that id clean it with thinners, not methys as methys stays on most things, so that could also be a problem if you used that to clean it before hand with the soap also. Also, id applythe coats within 20 minutes of each other, as by then the surface has dried enough to accept another coat, then leave when you are happy with how dark it is. I did mine with 4 coats, getting progresivly heavier with each coat (by a very slight amount) as each time there is more decent foundation to coat onto (i you know what i mean). As some paints dont like to adhere to the same surface when its completely dry
