need a facelift coupe angel eye, 6000k

hey guys

one of mine blew out, and now the one's from jlevi are a little different. I would rather just get a used one that is a year or so old anyways because thats how old mine are

i have heard plently of stories of new replacement ones being a lot bright than ones that are older (anton) so i would like a used one rather than having to buy 4 new ones......

the ones that jlevi has now have a random metal clip at the top.... which mine doesn't have

so facelift coupe angel eye, i only need one

6000k



thank you

Jonathan

Jonathan,

I don't think any manufacturer makes them without the metal portion at the top anymore but perhaps a fellow member has an extra.

i have it, but i don't know if i'm going to put it on or not. 1 of mines is broken as well, so i'm probably going to end up getting replacement rings for it. if you want, i could send you just the bare ring? and you put replace it with the other one. i'd like the keep the acrylic part itself in case i get some rings to put in.

the only thing i need is the ring (and the attached wire of course....)
i have all the wires needed, and my other 3 rings work completely fine

That's another solution Jonathan, we can send you out one of the new rings and you can transfer the inner CCFL tube to the old housing to match.

am i missing something?

its just the whole ring we are talking about right?

no ballasts or anything like that, just the ring with the attached wire that goes to the little ballast






i'm all confused now talking about hollow tubes and housings....

If you take a look at the ring, it's a bare CCFL tube that is glued into the outer plastic housing. You can transfer that outer plastic housing onto a new CCFL tube to keep the same exterior look with a brand new bulb.
