Why do my new angel eyes look like this?
2 Attachment(s)
Hey guys,

Yesterday I installed new Weisslicht V2 angel eyes but ran into a problem. They all worked and looked great except for the furthest right ring. That ring had some yellow light illuminating out instead of being all bright white like the other upgraded rings.

Here are two pictures of how it should look and how it actually looks on the other side:

Anyone know what might be causing this and how I might be able to fix it?

Thank you everyone in advance for your help!

I don't think you can fix that. The AE bulb shines to a Celis tube (don't know how to call it exactly) that transfer the light to the AE rings. The yellow that you see might be a flaw in the Celis tube itself. Did you try to switch the bulbs and see what happen?

Or it's not seated properly and you're getting odd leakage.
