    Or am I just unlucky?

    Both fog lamps on my tourer cracked, probably due to resurfacing with chip and stick methods, which as we know even when the racing line is well established the gutters are still full of loose stuff. Have sent for some sticky back plastic to effect repair, unless anyone has a better option? Photo0012[1]. Photo0013[1].

    Hi Guys
    I may have a cunning plan (as one of mine is cracked), I found a genuine one on Fleebay which will arrive soon. looking at the existing light there is a gap of about 2-3mm between the lens and the plastic surround. My plan is to use some green house plastic sheet and cut out two pieces and glue them to the rear of the plastic surround then refit the lights. Will keep you posted.

    Done the same thing! so far so good. just used double sided sticky tape, and plastic corrugated sheet, straight onto the damaged lens never use them anyway.

    Due to their positioning they do take a bit of abuse from stones being flung up, takes a hefty one to crack them mind. It happened on my '03 as well buddy.

    Replacements aren't cheap from Honda, but at least for the 7th Generation they're available quite cheap on eBay.
