    The rubber seal around the headlamp is part of the headlamp. I used a small "d" seal with self adhesive backing and it looks great.
    That which does not kill me only makes me stronger.

    I thinks someone put LEDs around their's. It worked but didn't go over too well on the forum.

    If you want to go with the LED route, I have found some that look a little better than the ones previously posted. I'll be using these on my headlights in the near future. May even wire them in as turn indicators.

    I like the idea of the L.E.D. light strips! I have been wanting to do similar. Looks like they also have angel eye ring kits too. I will have to check into them when I am ready to convert to HID.

    I just glued mine back on with 3M trim adhesive. Members here have bought just the gaskets from Isuzu dealers for ~$40 for the pair.

    Part Numbers: Left 8-97212-448-0, Right 8-97212-447-0

    Call an Isuzu parts dealer and see if they're still available.

    You also need to ask yourself if you really need them?

    Quite a few on the forum don't have these and some have never had them will no ill effects.

    Mine doesn't have them, I've never had them. Often wondered if there could be any negative effects? It just looks "normal" to me to see that space there.

    Look at the bright side.... without, you get more (just a little really) cool, fresh air in the bay. I drove without one for a while and I could hear a very subtle whistle at highway speed. Went away when I 3M 2-sided taped it back in.
