This may amuse some of you. One of the foglights in my Eunos hasn't worked since I had it, so having tracked down some new xenon H3 bulbs, I only had to install them. It was looking like a real nightmare because when I undid the 4 screws at the front of the housing, it still didn't want to come out. The bracket itself is mounting in an extremely obscure position. I checked with the Mazdaworld forums and it turns out that one only has to undo the 4 screws.
It was then that I realised with horror that the entire fog light housing was full of water, except for a tiny air bubble. Someone had obviously tried to cheaply repair the thing with a dodgy home made gasket and failed to the extreme. Check out these pics.
It won't be hard getting a replacement from the US, but I have to say I've never seen anything like this. One of my original EA headlights was a bit discoloured but nothing like this...
Beware of dodgy bastards.

well the repair worked (in a way). it is water proof, just the wrong way around.
when i pulled the radio out of the HQ after i got it, i was amazed to find that it was held in only with Blue-Tac.
secondhand cars can be so much fun sometimes!!
