    FL/Headlight can see how much the silver has faded through the len's After Disassembly i noticed a little bit of moisture on the reflector at the front . gave it a wipe with my finger and it took more silver plating off. ( My fault for not drying out lens properly before i re assembled ) The a light scuff for the paint to apply too. Masked up and first dust coat applied. Second dust coat. Third Light coat. Fourth is a Wet coat Fifth and final wet Coat. Finished product with the paint and cleaner i used for prep. Will Get some Night pics, Was surprised to actually see the light beem on the garage wall during the day. Oh had a little problem getting light's to work after installation. Forgot to hook them back up to power. ( What a Dickhead ) But in all seriousness , i believe i will buy the aftermarket Light and put these Genuine ford lenses on them. Had to have a go as it would have eaten at me for not trying.No regret's.

    Sound's like that will be the way i go, realy want to keep as many genuine part's as possible . Watched a video on Utube last night about re chroming light reflectors . My left Reflective coating is very bad , Thee right still has a full coat but wont reflect any light. Left Headlight Right headlight

    I've had the headlight's apart already to clean and inspect , going to try and re chrome the reflective part first .If that fails then i may buy the aftermarket headlight and swap the reflector's.

    they are genuine ford glass ....gave them a good clean , The silver reflective s*** is worn out on them. might paint them to see if that help's . But knowing me i will just end up buying genuine new one's. will post some pic's of them tomorrow.

    Glad it was a simple fix , now need to adjust the lights to get maximum light on the road as they seem really Dim......Had to pull over to see if they where on.

    Sprayed the the contact's, Jiggled the switch on/off for a good solid 3 minutes , High Beam came on on the Left headlight but not the right. took the right headlight out and checked the backing plate for the high beam globe , was dirty (pic Below) , gave it a quick clean with a wire brush , Presto , Hi beam now work's on both Headlight's.

    Have not stripped it down yet. waiting on some info. Will give that a try after lunch...Cheer's.
  14. G'Day gent's Thought i would ask if there is any thing i should look out for , before pulling apart the high beam / Indicator switch. Hoping it is a easy task to clean the contact points.
