99 IS200 Headlights in an Altezza 99?

Postby cammygrieve » Mon Jun 24, 2013 12:23 pm

Anyone know if this is possible? Got some Lexus headlights lying around that are very cloudy, want to refurb them and put them in the tezza if they fit?

They should fit mate, or I hope so cause I've a set in my shed painted ready to go in :lol:

Just need to manually adjust the height on them I think.

As far as I'm aware that's the only difference is the adjusters.

Do you want to sell the headlamps you are taking out or are they broke??

Relying to this topic, wullie might be good idea that, wouldn't think it would peel might do after a year or 2 though depending on use and bulb wattage might be better with hid's??

could always carbon dip them as same then as painting, But I'm doing mine gloss as got the Toyota black ones but think they will look better gloss than matt, see who does it first and I'll get back to you with results

Is200 are same is300 are slightly different
only thing is as been said auto headlight levellers but some altezza's have them already anyway

have to watch out for heat cracking so you will need to flat them back quite a bit to get rid of it and then spend a while polishing them back up

I did mine gloss black.. just one though.. the other one is ruined.. the oven was too hot for it :lol: (used the exact same temperature and time in the oven as the first one, only a few hours later so the oven was cooled off.. or so I thought... :lol: ) Anyone care to sponsor me one near side headlamp? :lol:

I might have purchased myself a lexus so I can steel some of the goodies off, one thing it has is black clear headlights so will save me the trouble of doing all this :)

Thanks for the help guys
