I second that. PlastX cleared up my cloudy/yellowed headlight lenses beautifully. From what I remember, it was no more than 4 or 5 dollars at Wal-Mart.

oh ok yea i already have keyless entry so i'll just get the interior door handles in graphite black and call it a day. Thanks again Steve!

Re: fixed up the ride a bit

no prob. i took apart my stereo face today and tried to polish it with scratchX, so far this has helped the most and its doesnt look cloudy anymore, altho its still scratched. i would buy a new piece but theyre discontinued lol. now my plastic plate is held onto the face with a few pieces of scotch tape haha. i dont think it will fall out tho otherwise ill just glue it back from inside. i wanna get a new deck but cant find one that looks normal and doesnt have all sorts of rice lights like blue and green and red all over. so for now ima just keep the one i have.

Re: fixed up the ride a bit

i replaced it with the whole new LED piece from 2006+ civic EX coupe. its very bright and has 6 snapleds (red-orange) with focusing lens. but if thats too much trouble, get the raybrig hyper clear 7440 bulb, its almost 2x brighter than stock while using the normal 21w. im using them in my rear signals and reverse lights.

8thgen lamp needs to be glued in place. the shape is the same, but the mounting is different. i just used some silicone on the back side. if you want the clear lensed version with more superflux leds, get the new 06+ hybrid piece. this one is for ex coupe.





and the bulb if you want to keep it stock

Re: fixed up the ride a bit

i would always wipe any filament bulb with a cloth prior to installing, since it extends life. you can get the raybrig bulb online if you google it, or ebay too prolly.

Re: fixed up the ride a bit

pulled over? thats doubtful for having a brighter and safer bulb. its a clear bulb just brighter. the stock 7440 is one of the dimmest bulbs compared to other american sizes.

Re: fixed up the ride a bit

oh okay lol. its actually the law in almost every state that it reads you can have two or more brake lights. two is enough so i dont think you would get pulled unless one of the side brakelights is out.
