  • Aby headlight reflector

    As above the reflectors on my ABY are showing signs of the chrome flaking off can they be refurbished? or can you get these from tradition? if so part number would be helpful also how easy is it to dismantle from the unit?

    Am hoping to see some responses to your request as mine are nearly in the same boat

        When I looked last week AT had new rhd units at 450 euro each
        Getting them re chromed properly is quite expensive. Like £200 each?
        Maybe just search for good second hand ones from cabriolet. They come up now and again.

            They can only re-chrome metal headlights.There are places who re-silver headlights although i think its sprayed on to the surface. I think S2 ones are plastic not metal. Someone can confirm this i guess.

              Correct. I had the ones on the Ur done. Some sort of vacuum process. Think they were done in Poland. Rob here arranged but not sure if he does ellipsoid.

                Wow £450 is pretty expensive!! Mine are ok atm but having had the S2 bodywork all refurbished last year would look good with better light units

                  Don’t really want to pay €900 for elipsoids and second hand ones are around £200/250 each and they are going to be at least 20yrs old so re- silvering seems the best option at the moment. Just need to find someone that does it.

                    There is a company in Birmingham called duel- metalising that can do a pair of lights for around £80-£100 I will give them a bell and find out some more information.

                          Watching with interest, now if we could find someone who could refinish the glass then we could have a viable solution for the headlights finally!
