Ink stamps on the upper rear side of the bulbs can be washed off very easily, so be careful when cleaning.

I thought only dual headlights on each side got T-3
My Nova has 1 on each side, Would they be T-3 as well?
TIA

Would I lie to you?

I may have been a salesman for much of my life, but since I'm not selling anything, there is no reason to. Actually, even when I was selling I didn't see any need to lie. One of my ex-gf's on the other hand was a whole lot better at remembering who she told which lie to.

Me, I never or wanted to work that hard.

There are many on Ebay right now. I would buy a reproduction set. They are brighter and more dependable if your going to use them..

I've purchased many originals over the years only to find out they are not very bright, get smoky or burn out. I purchased a set of repos and have lasted very well. They look very much like originals.
