Just to warn you guys..
Don't buy this model with foggy lights because it is not possible to get spare parts anymore.. It is old model and long time out of stock. They had some replacement parts available but they are all gone ;)

Thanks for the warning. Perhaps some of our own in-house customizers here at DX will be able to help out with this sort of issue if folks still need headlight replacements. :twocents:

It is easy if you can get the clear part ( lens ) out of the light.. Than you can repair the original lenses..
I tried that but it is big risk.. You can damage chrome part around the lens or you will destroy the lens..

At the end I drilled the hole in it and just replace them ;)

Can't believe they never figured out the 'solution' was to use canopy white glue instead and that they completely re-engineered the part(s).

Hey Guys, I thought I'd put this here as I wasn't quite sure where to place it, I contacted CMC this morning regarding the headlights for the CMC Ferrari 250GT Berlinetta Passo Corto SWB and within an hour I got a reply from Mr Peter Diller...

Dear Mr. *Blank*

Thank you for your request. We just checked our warehouse, but unfortunately we don't have any of these headlight-lenses left that we could send you. We're sorry that in this case we cannot help you with your matter.

Best Regards / Mit freundlichen
Grüssen

So does anyone know if there is a solution / replacement for the headlights?  I never really noticed until recently that the headlights on one of my CMC SWB models is foggy.  I sent a note to CMC last week (before seeing this thread), so while I haven't received a response yet as the automated reply indicated Herr Diller was at the big model show, I know know what to expect when he does respond. :bawling:

I have the same issue, and I already give up on finding a replacement lens. In my opinion, even the foggy lens is better than the black stub. You can just tell yourself that the model represents a very old 1:1 car that has foggy lenses :)
Feel free to have a look of my collection on DX.

Hi Kane,
did you poke the lens in the middle, to take out the foggy lens? or do you heat the glue in the perimeter of surrounding lens with needle heated in fire.
any others care to share how to do it?
is there any other way to clean up the foggy lense using chemical perhaps?

I have just mounted the new lenses. Instead of a drill I used a needle heated in fire. :D The old, foggy lens popped so easy.

I have used a Loctite gel adhesive to mount the new lenses and I didn't applied it on the whole contact surface between lens and headlight frame.

Just stick a very sticky tape on the lens, then pull quickly.

Do not destroy the lens as you won't get another. Then a normal car polish on a cloth will clean them up nicely. You can push them back in or use a dab of water based clear glue to hold them in place.

Or just clear varnish. Works like a charm!
