Default OFFICIAL GROUP BUY Headlights (Low Beams) Clear Lens

Well, we heard your voices, and this is your chance to own a set!

Who is Organized Garage Status?

We specialize in headlight restoration and customization services for Lexus vehicles. We have been in business and a vendor for Club Lexus for a little over a year with impeccable results and products to show.

What and why Clear Lens Conversion?

Most old model vehicles' headlights had fluting or more commonly known as “lines” on the lenses to disperse the light output of the old fashioned halogen bulbs more effectively. Advancements of modern technology in lighting have completely moved on from ingenious manipulation of light rays through the fluting in the lenses and have completely switched to clear headlight lenses. The switch to clear headlight lenses not only provided better lighting performance but also gave newer vehicles a cleaner and a modern appearance.

What the deal is?

Our Clear Lens Conversion service is available at any time to anyone, but since most owners drive their vehicle daily, they are not able to send in their headlights for service with a week or two of downtime, and because of this many owners have been inquiring about purchasing the lenses. Well, we heard your voices, and this is your chance to own a set.

The service is available through us by shipping in your headlights set for $480.

Now is your chance to purchase a set instead of sending your headlights in for a service, for only $340 shipped to you (within CONUS)!

We will start shipping orders on the second week of February (6th onwards) with tracking numbers.

We’ll need at least 5 people to get the ball rolling. We have a very limited amount of sets on hand, and might not have any for another month or two. Invoices will be sent through PayPal, for a 100% deposit, which is fully refundable.

Details:

The lenses are brand new from a mold. The lenses surround are painted (either grey or black, your choice), just like the factory lenses. Those who have had clear lenses before will be familiar with why the surround is painted. The material is polycarbonate, which is exactly what OEM lenses are made of. Surround rubber gaskets are not included, you will have to reuse the ones from your OEM headlights, however we can include generic surround rubber gaskets by request. Like all aftermarket headlights, the lenses are not clear coated or hardcoated. It comes standard in all our services to install a protective film as an alternative and a permanent solution from dulling, turning yellow and damaged headlights. In this group buy, we are giving you guys the option to include this service with your purchase for $70 or not.

Installation:

The complexity of installation is 6/10, if done the right way. Minor modifications are needed when using the OEM reflector bezels to fit the clear lens. Our process of install entails scraping all the old glue off and installing new butyl glue, which can also be purchased from our website for $15, and is the exact same glue they use from the factory to seal the headlights properly. We will try our best to upload short videos of disassembly and installation as soon as possible as a guide. Install at your own risk. We will not be liable for water seepage and damages from DIY install.

Here are examples of our work and the quality of the Clear Lens Conversion.

That includes the labor in taking apart your headlights, cleaning it, scraping all the old glue off, installation and protective film. This group buy is only for the lens itself since a lot of people have been inquiring about just purchasing the lens and doing it by themselves.

UPDATE ON THE CLEAR LENS GROUP BUY:
After several delays on new lenses, our supplier has given us one last chance to receive new shipment. Due to not having enough demand, we might be pulling the plug on making them, for good. If we can get at least 10 people on the group buy we might be able to justify continuing production. We have 4 on the list as of the moment. This group buy is for the lens alone. The lens is brand new from mold, not deligned or sanded down. BRAND SPANKING NEW. The soonest they can be available if we get 10 people on the group buy is mid March. Contact us with your Club Lexus username so we can put you on the list, and we'll send out invoices through PayPal at the end of this week.

Will you be carrying on these on your site after the group buy? Or is this just a one time thing?

Please see post #8. There is still no guarantee we'll be able to continue offering this.

I'm impressed that you were able to find a company to produce the lens and only sell them for $340. This a great deal for a low production product. I hope you're able to make this group buy happen.

UPDATE ON THE CLEAR LENS GROUP BUY
The waiting game begins! We have 15 people on the list, we've sent out the invoices Friday night, but we've only received payment for 5 so far. We are still accepting orders until we receive at least 10 payments. FYI the later we receive the payments, the later we can submit our order to the manufacturer.
