FS: W108 amber taillights (sold)

**sold**

This is the same beautiful set I auctioned off here in May 2012, at

The highest bidder had a financial catastrophe soon after, so I excused him from buying them.

Here's a pic of everything:
http://i59.tinypic.com/2ppizw2.png

It's two amber lenses, three surrounds, a (left) red lens, three gaskets (there's a very good one under the red left lens), and two pair of bases (the bulbholders frame). One base pair is plastic, the other is metal. I don't know what happened to the other red taillight. Maybe I sold it, maybe it got lost when I moved.

Price: $125 shipped (US only). If you want just part of it, PM me.

Pics:

Right taillight surround: an almost-invisible first hint of flash rust starting on it, more on the top horizontal face than the bottom. Part number 108 826 02 59. Also stamped 224202-1H2 R.
Exterior face:

Back side:

Right taillight lens. There is an about-5-millimeter long, 2-millimeter deep chip, it's on the inside, you can see it by the tip of my thumb on the bottom inside edge of the lens, it would be hidden of course by the surround. Holding the lens straight against a 60-watt light bulb, I do see some crazing in the amber and two red sections, when looking at it through the inside face. Holding it against the light bulb with the interior side close to the light bulb, looking through the exterior, moderate crazing is visible throughout the entirety of the amber part. But it ain't too bad. Part number 108 826 0256, also stamped 22 42 02-1H1 R.

Crazing visible when looking through the inside, along the top, directly under a 60-watt bulb:

Some crazing visible, when looking through the exterior face, if I hold it just right against the light bulb:

Left taillight surround. It doesn't have flash rust; but, it does look like a previous owner polished it very well, maybe a little *too* well--it's a little worn on the top edge, with polishing scratches. But not too bad. Very clean backside, but does have individual spots of oxidation, with flaked-off chrome, on the back. Even so, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Left taillight surround, showing ardent polishing scratches:

Left taillight lens (red). Plastic is a little dull, you'll want to polish it. I'm not going to separate the lens, the surround, and the gasket. They all came off together easily. Gasket is very good, though not perfect.

Left taillight lens (amber). It's not perfect; has a slight crack at the inside edge of the amber part, some slight cracking at the top left of the white part, crazing on the inside red part. Still, not bad, not bad "atall" as they say outside of skinny latte la-la ville. I've twisted it lightly in my hands, these cracks are not serious enough to threaten its structural integrity.

Might be nice if you put the pictures in this thread, or at least the URLs to the pictures of the parts you are trying to quickly sell. Digging through long old threads is pretty unappealing...

Done! And, the deadline for bidding has been extended 24 hours, til Monday/Tuesday midnight.

As with everything I sell, satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back, including shipping. Just return the item in the same condition it was received in. In the three years I've been selling here, on PP, and (primarily) on STD, no one has ever returned anything.
