PostSubject: Sunfaded headlights   Wed Mar 20, 2013 8:20 am

hey ya guys and gals i have a 91 AE101 Levin GT-Z and the plastic lenses have yellowed and hazed from the sunlight. i heard you can buff them but id rather replace them with new. my question is has anyone been able to source aftermarket replacements for this model as i have been unsuccessful in my search so far.

Any info would be appreciated Smile

I've never seen crystal headlights for the Levin either. I don't think they exist. You can sand and buff them to look as good as new though Smile

Haha sounds about right. I can give you contact details for a guy who works at Toyota (it's actually the one in Palmerston North) who can do you a really good price. MUCH cheaper than retail. For example, I got my BZ Touring headlights and corner lights brand new through him for $680 last year. Retail is about $1000.
