    how are the lights from Arts performance tinted? on the outside or what?

    because these lights are really really making me mad.. not to thrash or hate on art, he is a great guy to deal with and i recommend him to many people..

    but the lights i bought from him.. (Blue oval lights?) are terrible. i had to reseal them twice with silicon... the exterior (tint? idk) of the light is cracking all over.. so my lights now look foggy. i have water spots all in them because of bad seals... ive sealed them good and it hasn't done it since but still...

    soo my question, is the tint on the outside of the lens? or the inside or are the housings tinted? to me it looks like the lenses are tinted.. i want to try and fix these but i dont know if i lightly sand them, it i will sand off the tint.

    the lens is a tinted colored plastic. THey arent BOI lights... both places sell the same light from the same manufacture.

    mine was fine, but it was smoked way to dark for my taste. Its not the reason i got rid of them though. I not sure how there doing now youll have to ask dfg_pimpin. From far away it looked like smoked covers which was :'( but up close it look'd sick! It never leaked or anything so i cant say anything bad bad about them.

    mine are in perfecto shapo...the ony problem i see people having is with the weatherstripping on teh corners. i would say you got a bad pair of headlights, or you fubared them up some how.
