Default Glass Headlight Assemblies

Anyone know if they make glass headlight assemblies for an '05 touring? i have started to hate the plastic lights. my wife's neon has faded, her trailblazer has faded, my pt has some BAD spots in them. it's just maddening how much they draw from the look of the car. any ideas or links would be appreciated. thanks guys!

I have never seen a true glass headlight assembly for a PT. I have seen some mod kits that let you use old round glass sealed beams. I suspect that would be your only choice. I believe that is what this photo shows. I've seen photos of single highlight mods like this too:



And here's a forum thread on this:

Headlight Quad Retrofit for the PT


Also, I recently replaced my assemblies with new TYC brand lights from RockAuto. I believe the quality of the TYC headlights are a little superior to the originals and they look great. You can read about that here:

Whats everyone doing about cloudy headlights?????

The glass headlights are a thing of the past. You can sand and spray clear on them. Otherwise you will be buffing every 3mo.

I polished my starting with 1500 grit sandpaper, then 2000 grit followed by polishing compound and a headlight sealer. They look like new.
