FT: OEM DIY Blackhousing Headlights w/chrome corners for OEM

Ok guys, I really would like to trade these headlights SOON. Like, the next few days. Local pickup in the bay area would be preferred, but if you want to work something out with shipping, let me know. I need OEM headlights in good condition, since I have a project to work on. These headlights fog a bit on the driver side, I dont really know why, I sealed them up really well but I cant figure out why they fog up, but its not a real problem. Also, On the driver side there is like a place that got some black paint on the chrome corner, but its really not noticeable. I will go ahead and clean them up, but I am just letting you know. Here are the pictures:









the last picture, you can kinda see the driver side a bit fogged, but its not that bad really. Anyways, let me know what you guys wanna do.

they can be OEM with orange strips or OEM cleared, as long as they are OEM headlights in good condition!

I would be intrested, but I can't survive without having headlights on my car, and I live all the way on the other side of the country

I seriously need to move to SoCal to get in on these deals

15-20 bucks i think? i will even give you another set of blacked housings (no reflectors, lens), except the second set are not chrome corners, they are just flat black throughout. i have a box, just ship your OEM's back out in the box I give you. got any pics of your OEMs?

if the corners are full black it will reduce the visibility of the signal there greatly?

from my experience, yes n no. ive seen some black housings that use glossy paint.. and the reflective properties are still present. i personally had flat black on my housings, so the light didnt reflect as much as i wanted to.

hope that helps.

I was wondering if the the place where the red circle is, is painted? Not where the orange stip goes, but right above it, the bottom of the clear corner.
