Well, I still have my unblown 4100K. But the glass tube has some weird build-ups and they're 2~3 yrs old tho. I have the original box, so I'll see what I can do. But please keep in mind that I can never guarantee it wont be blown during the shipping process b/c I'm not a proffesional seller.. I mean, it's totally up to you to choose the shipping plan to add a protection, but it'll suck if it's blown when you get it.

Even if I give it to you for free, if the shipping cost will become more than $25, you should buy a brand new pair online; they're about $50-$60.

I can box it, weigh it, and tell you the weight. Then you can choose your shipping company that ships it out w/ "fragile" sticker within $25. If it's possible, you can lmk the company & its shipping plan, and PM me your shipping address. How about that?

(I wish you and I live close by so I can just hand it over to you, and you can buy me a drink or something lol.)

And thank you for the compliment. Still shaving my front lip here and there.

I wanna let that tyrannosaurs shout w/ Tupac's voice lol.
I dont see why shipping would be so much. Just bubble wrap the bulb itself and mail it in one of those envelopes with built in bubble wrap. Ill pm you my address. And yeah, i wished i lived near everyone haha.

The cops are not cool with it. Already received 2 tickets for my headlights within this year.

But ill look em up. If shipping do end up costing that much ill just buy a new pair.

Well, bubble wrapping it in the envelope wasn't really practical.. It could break easily b/c there will be a lot of contacts to the bulb. It can't be shipped like LED bulbs, you know. So I figured just using the original case is the best shot.


Here it is.


I noticed that the plastic cover is not holding up anymore.


Applied some electrical tapes for your sake.


Notice the coating is wearing off. The filment isn't dead yet tho.


In the original case.


Wrapped it. And look what I found. A perfect box with some fillers.


5.75 oz.


Dimension.


This is probably the lightest & firmest packaging I think. Hopefully this will be less than $25 tho.

Lmk your preferable postal service, and I'll ship it out to you.

Got your PM.

If it's under $25, I'll ship it and we'll figure out the total price and you can Paypal me later, once you receive it. And I will How about that?

2 tickets eh... You should always be home before the sunset!

Hope this helps.

Looking into redoing my window trim with PlastiDip again. How is yours holding up with washing and all of that?

Thanks, Daniel. I was lucky to have that shot w/ no cars around. (Actually there was one car by the intersection on the background, but I erased it for the hell of it lol. Can you tell?) I like their spoke rims, but yeah it would be nice if they make more mesh wheels as well.

It has been a little over an year on mine, but it is surprisingly holding up quite well. (No such change since the last pic I posted on the DIY thread.)The only section being a little bit (tiny bit) damaged is where the edge of the window frame (rubber packing weather strip) meets the trim when closing the door, which I happened to discover that a few days ago. Idk if I said it on my DIY thread but there is a way to fix those kind of imperfections / damages, which is by using acetone to liquefy the section and filling out the spot. You can see many clips on Youtube w/ "Plastidip + fix" for that. Now, it depends on how far you keep the can away from the trim, but 5~6 or maybe even 7 coats will be very strong imo. (I think I did 4~5 coats.) GL, and have fun.

Thanks, bud. Looking forward to seeing how your side mirrors get blacked out differently than mine.

It took me a little while to get back in the business... Had to save up some fundings for other necessities, and the only effective way of accomplishing that asap was to stay away from the temptations (6GA)... But it's over, and my mod bug has FINALLY bit me after all.




Bayson R OEM Optional Style PU Front Bumper Lip
(W/ DIY Custom Shaving)











HONDA OEM Optional FRP Side Skirts







Bayson R OEM Optional Style PU Rear Bumper Lip
Note: The factory rear center under spoiler needs to be removed, prior to its installation.




Thanks for looking.
