SOLD: Mach HIDs. WARNING: TOO MANY PICS !!!

SOLD! SOLD! SOLD! woo-HOO!!!!

Here we have a set of Mach HIDs that, up until two months ago, were on Phacade's car (see: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s....php?t=173690).

I put them on my car a month ago, then miraculously lucked into a brand NEW set - so these are ready for their next home.

Unfortunately, although the lenses are still in okay shape, my car had some bodywork done this month, and the bodyshop somehow screwed up my windshield, finish, and the lights - all of which now have weird spots on them that don't seem to come off (indeed, the bodyshop is replacing my windshield). The lenses have plenty of tiny spider cracks, and a hint of yellowing, too (although the latter was only noticeable against my silver paint).

Nevertheless, they still look good on the car (see below), and the light output is incredible. They could certainly use a restoration before too long, but it's far from being NECESSARY. Everything else about them is fine - no broken tabs or any other issues.

They'd make a great Xmas present to yourself!

Buy 'em and I'll throw in what's left of my Novus 1, 2, & 3 plastic polish, cleaners, and cloths. That and some serious elbow grease (or a power buffer) might work wonders (although I couldn't get it to do jack squat with just my little ol' hands). I'll also throw in a year-old set of Bosch ICON wipers - which still work great and were only replaced because I just put larger-than-stock ones on...

PS. no wiring harness included - I made my own, and you can too! (Bulbs ARE included, though.) They'll come in the same, big Ford Racing box (complete with their own cool, floating, plastic "hammocks" inside) that my new ones came in.

On car:

High beams on! Feel the burn - it's like Cyclops from the X-men! (Uh - the pic below, not above...)

Those are just stock, believe it or not.

Two other things about the bulbs: In the on-car pics, I've got HOËN Xenonmatch bulbs in the highs, and Stealth chromium bulbs in the turns - those are NOT included in the sale (the off-car pics show the stock bulbs back in).

Yes, I did - with the Novus products. However, I just tried on my coffee table with the included cloths and my bare hands - so I think it's going to take sanding or power buffing to do anything.

Also, whatever they did at the bodyshop has made the scratches look worse (especially on the passenger's side) - I'm guessing there's some sort of wax or polish in there.

You'll note, however, that the outdoor pic was taken AFTER the bodyshop worked its bad mojo on 'em - you can see they still look pretty good.

^^ Thanks! Just passing the torch down from Massive - whose SEDAN had been the inspiration for me for almost two years...

See? http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=60669

(Third pic down shows his final look, and the one I achieved - although I far prefer my Ford logo to whatever he's got on the badge.. Fila? Scroll through the thread, though - lots more pics of that hot, hot look.)

And here I was obsessed with BLACKING the Machs (before I got 'em) - but I'm lovin' this look just fine. (Oh yeah: and it looks a HELLUVA lot better in the flesh than in pics! Pics just don't do it justice, dunno why.)

If you do all that, in Harvest Gold, no less - you'll have a "meh sedan" no more.

Oh, I get it now - you meant to say: "I'd want them if they didn't look that bad."

Nice to know.

Ah wow that is just great, I'm gonna look at that thread. Now lemme tell ya something. I'm using that new blackberry storm (not promoting) right now, and on this thing those pics are stunning, so I can't wait to get home and look at them I'm thinking of doing a repaint, same color of course, but I have tons of little scratches pn it. Lol. Hey, may I suggest a roush scoop on there? That would look sweet.
