Replacement C6 Corvette headlight lenses -
DO NOT PURCHASE NEW HEADLIGHTS! Why spend over $1000.00 per headlight when you can get lenses and make your old headlights look new again!
OEM specifications insure that you will have a perfect fit.
These are assembled to the same quality standards as the OE units. Follow our installation guide on our youtube.com/umnitza channel and you'll have many more years of great headilght and light visibilty.
2005-2013 C6 Corvette headlight lenses feature:
1) Angel Eyes - All DAYTIME VISIBLE DURING DIRECT SUNLIGHT (not all options available for all headlights, check drop down options)
2) Clear Film - It's a good idea to purchase some protective film to keep your headlights looking new if you are in a windy, dirty, or often grimy part of the country. Or, if you do a lot of night driving or country driving where debris can damage your headlight. The film will not protect from larger rocks or accidents
3) Butyl Sealant - we recommend ordering this with every single headlight lens you purchase. Most headlight sealant will not be reusable.
4) D1S Xenon Bulbs
HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE - EXPLANATION
In 2005, General Motors introduced the C6 Corvette with a clear plexiglass/acrylic cover for the headlights. Over time, the headlight lenses would have many issues from severe UV Exposure fading, to visible micro-fissures in the seals between the outer cover and the inner cover, and just failure due to repeated road debris impacts. Normal wear and abuse from exposure sun, car washes, dirt, sand and road debris.
As recently as 2015, General Motors (GM) continued to provide production lenses in limited quantities through the original OEM supplier.
However, in the summer of 2016, GM discontinued the production of not only the lenses but also the complete headlight assemblies. Currently, the only way to replace your headlights or lenses is sourcing through used/salvage channels.
New headlight assemblies original cost was $975-1200 per side. C6 replacement lenses ranged from $250-499 per pair. We're seeking to build about 500 units that we will pre-sell at $250 per set in single unit quantities to the kickstarter backers and sell at $450 per set with full production. We need some help. To get this product on the road, we only need .2% of total vehicle production. That's right, not even 1% of total vehicles on the road are required to get this project off the ground. We know we can do it!
(PS: This does not include headlight assemblies nor new weather strippping)
We have 15 years experience working with our existing factories to manufacture a new line of high performance replacement lenses for the C6 Corvette. These reproductions lenses will fit all Years and all Models that are C6 Corvettes from 2005 to 2013. Each lense will have a special engraving sequential number denoting the build sequence.
This is a high quality mold with UV protection coating, anti-glare, perfect OEM fit and finish, and we're doing it at a significantly reduced price as compared to the originals from GM.
We have already invested over $15K in the initial design, prototyping, legal fees, and various other miscellaneous fees. We're looking to get a little help from the same community of users that will benefit the most from getting this project off the ground.
