It the lense is pitted you can always buff it out. Took me 3 hours but i did both of them and they pass about 50% more like...but still probably 1/3 of what originally came out.

Mine were super bad. Used some 320 sand paper wet sand, then used a buffer with polishing compounds. Damn those lenses sure are hard! Thought i got tennis elbow.

Ok, the book sez the lights are different part numbers for the SE as compared to the SSE or SSEi. That may mean just the bracket, but may also mean the diameter. What diameter are the SE stock driving lights? Mine are (were stock) 4.5" in diameter.

Lemme know if that'll work for you or not, or someone else with an SE measure your lights please!

Which ones? I have aftermarkets in now. They're smaller. Same size as the Blazertech 3200. They look good despite being smaller, and allow a bit more airflow to the lower part of the radiator.

Or do you want some pics of my old dirty beat up stockers?

heres my Stock SE light, all destroyed and burnt on the inside.... and as you can see it is 4.5"

The one i replaced it with is quite a bit bigger than this.
Oh yeah, my camera is probably the crappiest of all cameras but it does work! haha sorry for the blurred Effects
Also, the bracket for my stock SE fog is the exact same for the larger one too.
