Default New Lights for the 02 Monte

FINALLY got the new to me headlights and tail lights on the 02 Monte today.
When I got her ALL of the lights had huge amounts of moisture in them. The tail lights were cracked and full of water. The headlights both had bad seals and dust covers and the inside silver was ruined. Needless to say, it looked horrible and I was probably very hard to see on the road when lights were needed.
But after today, thanks to Ken (ohara) & George (owens91), I do not believe that will be a problem any longer!!! You guys are awesome!!! Thank you SO much.
I will have to check the adjustment on the headlights once it gets dark but I can already tell that people will be cussing me as they drive towards me at night!!! WOW!!! They are bright now!!! And the people behind me will sure know now when I light up the brake lights!!!
Headlight pics first: Thank you SO much Ken!!

That looks Great what an upgrade for your Monte.
We don't know what abuse the lights take.
Its a wonder they don't short out.
I attached a front grill pic that would make your Monte look even kooler. I have seen them on ebay not sure where to get them. check it out

Thanks drivernumber3. I have been looking for one of those front covers. I keep checking ebay. I snoozed on the bowtie headrests I wanted to bid on and they went for less than 50 bucks ARGHHHHH


George- Yes, those taillights I had were horrible!!! The water just poured out of them as I threw them in the trash...LOL

Thank you!! Yes, Ken and George are awesome!! So the coolest thing just happened. My neighbor's brother came over and said while he was visiting next door he noticed that I changed out the lights on my car this afternoon. Well he has a 2002 Monte and his soon to be ex busted all of his lights out of his Monte last night. He asked if he could have my old lights...LOL I told him they were cracked and let in moisture but would probably get him where he needed to go for awhile if he put some clear coat on them to seal them up after he used a blow dryer to dry them out!! I guess they weren't really junk after all if they can help someone else!!
