Gen 2 headlight housing

Sooooo I have been searching and failing.

I need to unfortunately replace my headlight housings in my 98 GTS. My adorable 2 year old destroyed them while the car sat in the garage for a year. Normally he is pretty good about staying away from my car's. He sprayed something on them and then scratched the shit out of them. Luckily he didn't harm the paint. But I CANNOT find replacements anywhere.

If you have some or know where I can get some, let me know. If not I will start looking for junkyards that might have them. Thanks

I would either invest in a random orbital polisher or bring the car to a professional detailer. You've got nothing to lose and honestly I'd expect any damage a 2 yo can inflict to be removable with a heavy handed polishing. As you're finding out headlights are both scarce and expensive. Good luck!

Yeah, I can probably buff the ever living shit out of it and get it cleaned up. But you are right I haven't been able to find a single one online and that blows my mind.

Headlights are selling for 800-1000 each IF you can find them.

Give the repair a try, hope for the best.

FML....that is INSANE. But I have been looking for over a week and can't find them. I e-mailed numerous viper parts store owners and no one has them. One of the headlights has scratches INSIDE the lens, was like that when I bought it. So I have to take it apart and buff the inside. This is going to be so fun.

One of the historically more resourceful Viper owners experimented with disassembling and repairing the pods. He put one in an oven and gently raised the temp until the adhesive softened enough to separate the polycarbonate from the mounting base. That allowed for a superior refinish/repair.
