no, it's not about the "look"
I had a neighbor try to "restore" them... he has multiple franchises that do this work all over the southeast and after an hour or so he said - can't help you unless you open them up and we can try cleaning / polishing the inside.
I was under the impression that the assemblies were not able to be opened... and if they were, the humidity and rain in florida will likely continue to get in there... not sure if I could re-seal them as good as BMW did it 10 years ago.
What is bad about the eBay lights - are all eBay vendors equal in poor quality?
Is it a matter of fit? or will the eBay lights cloud up soon also?
