Default Another LXi Headlight Mod

Removed the fogged plastic. Applied stainless inside the cavity to match the flat area on the headlight surround. Looks great. Blue Bird should have done this.

Ron,

Some more details, please?

Where did you get the SS and who cut it?

Did you have to remove the front fascia and if so the details, please?

I am assuming you "glued" the SS in?

Looks great. Those faded lens sure ruin the looks of otherwise beautiful coach.

The stainless steel bezels are glued in with Sikaflex after roughing up the plastic behind. They were made for me by a shop in Clearwater, FL. It takes them a while to put an order through as they are kind of busy, and they charge about $80 each. You can slip them in without removing the bumper piece.

If a number of people are interested I can talk to the shop and see if they would do a quantity price for us.
