wb holden headlights

Apart from hanging a hz clip on the ute, is there anyway to improve the output of the headlights. Must be the worst headlight of all time. Are the wb stato lights any better with the built in spotlight?

you may need to get the reflectors re-chromed - you can also add a relay and fit higher output lamps to improve the lights...

Have gone the relay and bigger bulb route, with not much noticeable difference. The reflectors aren't too bad either. Do the spotlights in the statesman set up improve it at all?

I've got the statesman lights - the reflectors are ok but not that great - overall the lights are very ordinary- on low beam and better on high - so I'm not sure it will improve things a lot over what you have - others have complained about the WB lights and stated they have got much better results with higher output lamps. and good reflectors. Mine don't look like these and is what I expect good reflectors look like - along with very clear glass lens. https://www.google.c...

Didn't they also come with a round headlight? The 1 time I got some headlight reflectors re-chromed they didn't work like the originals did ,were still dull ask the chromer if they will be as good as new before doing that , maybe i look like a wood duck and chromers dud me often I never seam to have good experiences with chromers

Hiding rust under body filler isn't actually repairing the car. Even harder to catch out bogmen these days as filler has metal fibres in it.

ive just sent my wb reflectors off this morning, the process as per original is actually aluminium vapour deposition not chrome.

when i cleaned my lights to prepare them i found i could wipe off the silver with wd40 on a rag and find the primer underneath - chrome would not be removed this easily.

the place doing it does mainly chrome looking plastic for funeral stuff (handles on coffins etc) but when i spoke with the guy he said they bought the machine from hella when they closed local production. so thats what it did originally, headlight reflectors...

if you ever pull one apart you can even get a "haze" on a reflector in good nick, which will hurt light output. can be VERY CAREFULLY cleaned off but be very very careful as i mentioned above the aluminium can be wiped off pretty easily
