R34 Headlight lense replacement

Recommended Posts

Keen to know if anyone has tried replacing their R34 headlight lenses with BEHRMAN HEADLIGHT REPAIR LENS KIT.

https://www.nengun.com/behrman/headlight-repair-lens-kit-r34-skyline

Couldnt find anyone talking about using them. Anf if you have, how would you rate them. Size, shape and fit compared to factory.

Trying to decide between giving this a go or shelling out the coin for new ones.

Mine are well past resto. Full of cracks.

I've ordered a pair. While mine had clouding at the top I could remove, it also has those  micro cracks you can see in the sun. My concern is a single bad review left at one of the sites like rhdjapan I think, that complained they did not fit well (did not seal well).

On the other hand they have been popular in Japan, allegedly. So perhaps the review is bogus or perhaps it was an earlier revision.

The other option is to buy second hand units without the ballasts but those seem to be price high and of course you can't be sure the ones you're buying are not on the way to the same issue. You can also buy new without ballast. Or buy new complete at even more $$$s!

@phelbas I'd love to see pics and your thoughts on the new lenses. How well they fitted and the end result. Let us know for reference. Would be great.

I would like to update with results but am still waiting for nengun..
