The worst headlight ever. $25 ea

Update:
Only the driver side headlight is left. US shipping is going to cost around $20-$25.
It is in rough shape, but still good for practice de-ambering and HID install rehearsal.
So... buy a couple small interior trim pieces, electrical connectors, etc. from me and get the headlight free (+ shipping).

Original add:
I removed these from my 2000 (mostly) S and they are in bad shape.
I'll take $40 for the pair or $25 each plus actual shipping cost.

For shipping I have a 20"x20"x12" box they will both fit in at 15 lbs. I'll do FedEx, UPS, or USPS to US addresses. For really cheap individual shipping, I can wrap them in brown paper and tape a label on it. Canadians? I think you are out of luck on this one. Not worth the cost.
Free pick-up if you can ever catch me at home in northeast Ok.

Great for experimentation, lens removal, and de-amber practice. Probably not so good for use as actual headlights. Both actually worked before being removed from the car, but come with no guarantee.

Features...
Driver's side (left):
Looks dusty on the inside.
Has a damaged mounting bracket screwed to the bottom.
No back cover.
Missing turn signal socket.
Fog light cover missing and taped over.
Wiring wrapped in black tape.
A few minor cracks in the housing.
Corner piece has cracked lens and is glued on.
Lens is covered with a poorly done clear coat.




-SOLD-Passenger side (right):
No back cover.
Main lens is badly burned and just came completely loose as I picked it up.
Cracked insulation on wiring.
Peeling clear-coat on front surface.
Corner lens came off, but has a decent smoked surface (painted).




I still have the parts car and plenty of other odd parts that I should probably throw away. Feel free to PM me.

Are the rubber seals intact?

No. One is completely gone and the other is gummy and missing a few parts.

When I did my Bi Xenon projectors, I found some weather stripping at Lowe's that was almost perfect as a replacement. I'd recommend that over trying to re-use it from an old headlight.

...and the $25 is just a random price. I'll pretty much give them to anyone that can use them, but I'm not paying to ship them.

Are either one still sealed as they came from the factory?

I have the BiProjectors to install and feel like practicing unglueing the lens and grinding the Orange off before attacking my good ones.

I'm thinking just the passenger side light.

What do you think it would cost to ship it to 92530?

To make it worth while perhaps I get a few other things in the same box.

Got any Left side of console switches, or would the right side ones also work on the left side as well flipped the other way?

The passenger side light is sealed, I'm not certain if the driver side is. Shipping one headlight to California with minimal padding will cost about $20. I'm pretty sure that I just have blank covers for the left side of the console, but I think the switches can be reversed. I'll take a look tonight and see. I do have most of the interior of the parts car removed and stored in boxes.
