Just washed and waxed it. It was looking ultra shiny so I had to snap some pictures haha. I park under trees so the shade helps out too because its not in direct sunlight

Agreed. Glass lenses will be ordered and the new rear bags should be here next week.

Did you read the "Special notes" section in that eBay listing?

"Special Notes: These will only replace the lenses on ZKW-type glass headlights! Will not work with headlights that have plastic lenses!"

You have US plastic lens headlights, so the glass replacement lenses will not work for you. You need to polish them out with the 3M kit.

I didn't notice that but didn't look to far into it either. Good catch either way.

Oh well then I can polish mine up easily, I have done a few sets before.

Why street tires on a race car, though?

Maybe he doesn't have a trailer and uses that set to get to the track and back? Or they're his rain set.
