I'm planning on clear coating over the black, but if you have any suggestions for a better paint, shut away. It will be a little while before I get to that stage.

This past Wednesday, my Mach headlights came in the mail.

Unfortunately, during shipping, the guts (high and low beam fixture) broke loose from there adjustment screws and is now just flopping around inside. I've broken the headlights open today, and tomorrow, I should be able to start blacking out the chrome and repairing the fixtures. After that, the lenses need to be restored and I need to get the wires and plugs to get them on. It's going to be some work but I can't wait to get them on the car.

One done: lens restored, low/high beam clamped back into place, and blacked out housing. hopefully, the other one will get done this weekend, and if I'm lucky, I may be able to get them on the car too but that's unlikely.

Unfortunately, no.

I need a VW plug so I can wire them up to the car. I'm hoping to make it to a salvage yard tomorrow and see if I can find one that fits, but I don't even know what model VW's they are on so I'm not very hopeful. If I can't find anything, I'll just have to order the parts and wait till they come in.
