Hey Jacob will you post that picture of the covers for the Morrets? I can't find it. I want to see if Accurite Performance can look into getting some on his trip to Japan. Thanks

HIHO - if you want to do the light cover thing with the Morrettes, you can use Subaru's OE light cover, just remember to use a hot glue gun to join the two pieces together. I've seen it done on the Impreza, and looks really good.

ohhh... I'd like to see that too. Is that like a glass or plastic cover that goes over the morettes? Seems like it'd integrate them better.

are there pics out there somewhere?

BTW. Accurit is in Japan and he said he won't be able to respond much or at all.

HIHO:

Here are the Pics I have of the Morette Plastic covers. I think the idea is great, ie. BMW, but these particular examples look a bit cheap. I have been contemplating using the Subaru OE light covers, but I have not tracked down a set to try. I am reasonably sure that OE covers would not fit over the shape of the Morettes, but it is deffinitely worth a try. Please let me know if anyone has OE covers they can use for a test fit.

Thanks JH. I have look at my Morretes and thought about this alot. I can't really think of a way to connect them to the front. I was going to buy some plexiglass from Home Depot and make my own. I was going to form and file the edges smooth. I guess you could use clear silicon to attach it but I think that would look like crap. The only way I can think of is to drill holes at all four corners in the plastic and the Morretes. Attach a rubber gusset to the plastic and make the holes in the lights to snap in.

I would do it in a second but I don't like the idea of drilling into the morretes. I would want something that was easy to remove to clean etc. It would not be water tight so being able to remove when needed would be a must. Correct me if I am wrong but the actual optics are sealed not the housing? So holes in the housing wouldn't hurt that is if a little water got in. From what I have seen they are not water tight. Let me know if you guys have any ideas.

HIHO:

You are correct, the Morette housings are not water tight (not by a long shot) but the optics are. Great ideas. I was thinking of something similar with plexiglass, but I am not skilled enough to try and I think plexiglass scratches too easily to be practical.(?) I am going to have a body guy look at my lights and see if he has any suggestions.

They make a anti-scratch plexi that would work. But let me know if you get any info.
