Finally got the backordered gaskets from Modern this week and was able to put them on. A real PITA to get adjusted, and the gaskets don't fit exactly right, but overall it looks much better. I still have to try and get them aligned a little better, they shouldn't be blinding people but they are a little off to the right.

Not sure what to do with the turn signals yet. I'm thinking about trying to use some translucent amber paint to make them look like the exports. If it doesn't match the side markers I'll spray the same stuff on the clear markers I have laying around.

I like the look of the exports a lot, but I'm not going to pay that kind of money for turn signals. I don't care that much about having fancy lights, it's just that my headlights were real bad. I can see much better now.

yea, definitely looks 110% better vinny. if the amber thing doesn't work for the front turns, i'd say just get a fresh set of stock clear ones and put some of those titanium bulbs in em. that'd look nice and stock, and clean. :wink:
