Clean 96/97 Headlights

I had planned to use these but things aren't going in that direction anymore.

$100 + shipping

I obviously wasn't clear enough.

The are Clean 96/97 used headlights. To think they were in use for 14+ years and still look this good is a feat of mammoth proportions.

The lenses are smooth and have absolute minimal wear from road debris IF any at all. The passenger side has a TYC sticker on it and the other has no markings.

All adjusters are on these pieces including the little vapor vents for condensation.


If I missed something that needs discribing, let me know.

Thanks for your not so sure input.

I don't have a use for them, looking to get rid of them.

Make me an offer.

Your payment cleared on Sunday, and I still haven't heard from you. You won't answer my emails and I have no private messages. All I want is a tracking number. If I don't hear from you before 12PM CST on the 31st, I'm opening a dispute on Paypal.

Terribly Sorry. If you would like to check my Itinerary, it will show you meetings, flights, hotel reservations and the fact that I have been home 5 DAYS out of the past 12 months, ZERO exageration. Your choice.

I'll pm you the tracking ID.

The package was shipped out to you this afternoon from the East coast. I called a friend to send the package out for me.

Thank you for showing your ability to jump to conclusions, I think there was a "Jump to Conclusions" mat in a movie once... it was a bad idea then "this is a terrible idea"

Tool? You're the one that didn't keep up your end of the bargain. In my line of work, you do what you say or there are consequences. Apparently things are much more lax for you. I paid you like I said I would. You made a promise that you did not keep.

I waited more than 24 hours to hear from you before I sent an email.

I would've accepted your apology and chalked all this up to miscommunication, but then you went and started calling me a tool. Calling me names doesn't change the fact that I did what I was supposed to, and you didn't, regardless of the reason.

Promise? Never, I don't make promises I can't keep.

I wouldn't have apologized, period. If you can't see that bad and need newer headlights, try the dealer next time.

If you don't have the headlights by saturday, I encourage you to open up a Paypal Dispute and we'll go from there.

When they arrive, seeing as you don't beleive me, I also encourage you to post up a picture of the shipping label on the box. Let me know if they were sent out when I posted up yesterday.

Troll your email a little more and be less patient, it will take you places...
