I'm looking for some clear bumper lights for my 94 Coupe.

I ordered the ones from ProCarParts.com and they didn't fit. The quality was horrible as well(get what you pay for I guess) and I wasn't about to scratch/scuff my bumper to install them.

My first question is for you coupe owners who have clear bumper lights where did you get them and did they fit like your stock ones?

Second question... both of my bumper lights look as though there is condensation inside the lights... any suggestion on how to deal with this(be nice)?

question 1 -

yes, my bumper lights fit fine....I bought mine from Autodynamic over a year ago ( I originally cleared out mine ). I do not have the problems you are dealing with...perhaps they sent you the ones for the sedan. They are smaller, if I remember correctly.

I can tell you from experience that MOST stores label the ACURA LEGEND 91-95 as interchangeable. THis is not so...case in point is the clear corners...for the longest time trying to get clear corners they always had the sedan ones labeled as coupe ones

I originally cleared my OEM light as well, and truthfully, I like that look better. That aside, I also got my clear bumper lights from Autodynamics as well for my Coupe, and like you said, it did not fit perfect. The light itself is okay, but the tap that slides into the plastic bracket is too large. I had to trim mine down with a dremel tool to make it fit well. The quality control on those lights aren't the best, but like you said, you get what you pay for. I'm just glad that they are sealed pretty well so I have no condensation problems. The autodynamic and procar parts ones are all made by APC, so you will see no difference in quality.

Why not just clear out the originals? That's what I did and I love them!! Only took like 30 mins, a hammer, and a flat head screwdriver!

Because both my originals have the condensation look.

Once they are removed you will see where the lens and the housing join each other...at this point you can remove them and let them air dry in your house...then get some silicone glue and glue them back toghther along this seam and that should solve your problem...solved mine...only mine started fogging up after I removed the orange! But that did fix my problem...

Sweet! Looks like I have a project for this weekend.

make sure to clear them of orange before weather proofing them...just in case all the rough handling will cause them to loosen up again...
