Need some headlights

1989 Mercury Sable Wagon, I really would like to buy some new headlamps but I can't find any online and all the ones at the junkyard are in the same condition as the ones I have. I really really would like to buy them new, just the left and right main headlamps would be good buy if I could replace ALL with NEW I would really like to go that route

I have checked ebay, google, and searched this forum but can't find anything.

Re: Need some headlights

I couldn't find anything either. Contact a body shop and see if they can locate a pair. They can usually locate things like this. Might be worth a shot.

cool Re: Need some headlights

I'm assuming yours are yellow and oxidized. If a body shop can't source some aftermarket replacements they can do a restoration to them. They sand them with a DA sander at 320 grit dry, 700 grit dry, and 1,100-1,200 grit wet. They are then buffed with a white buffing compound with a black fluffy buffing wheel. You will notice a difference, but depending on how bad and how long they've been that way, they likely will not be perfect. You will get a much better result doing this way than with the kits they sell at the auto parts stores. 89-91 Sable lights aren't totally clear. The lenses on the inside are molded to reflect light.
