Tough man. I mean srysly...hail in Florida? That's about as bad as hail hitting in a summer storm with 80F weather and them being as big as baseballs that happened here in AL.

ya they told me all i could do was to file a small claims report and that if he couldn't be found nothing could be done... about the lights i really liked them but as u can see one of the plastic lenses was crushed in the accident and the light recently went out... so im planning on moving back to stock lights... *sigh* ill grab a pair form the junkyard since i cant find the part i need...
