    Already mentioned this in my original post.

    I will be using these with my LED tail lights I designed which I have mentioned on here before.

    Unlike ones that other people have designed my LED taillights include amber turn signals in the back up housings. so park and brake are contained in the outer housings while turn sig and rev are in the inner housings.

    When I post pics I will use my LED tail lights to show everyone...my LED tail lights are not yet ready to go into production and I plan to hold off until after the clear lenses are done just in case i need to make any modifications to the circuit boards.

    btw I don't think I will be able to get them anytime soon, maybe if they are like 5 bucks I will get them while I'm getting other bits for the other project I'm donating to but the other one is going to eat up some money. If someone buys that SR3 key I'm selling it would make it easier. lol

    Not a big deal, if you can it will make things easier. If you can't then maybe someone else will chime and and offer up a set.

    By clearish do you mean translucent lenses? I don't anticipate the lenses being clear like modern euro lenses. Even if they are clearer than i expect there are additives that can be used to increase opacity.

    I'd like a set of 78-81 clear side markers and a set of 78-81 tail lights with red turn signals. I hate yellow turn signals, especially on the rear of a car.

    not sure if I will be able to do red brake lens coupled with clear reverse and turn lenses. fact is 78-81 tail light lenses will come after the early first gen stuff and clear 78-81 side markers.


    I also was asked by a friend to do a clear tail light for his 87 GTA

    It would be nice if the people who are not interested could shoot me a PM telling me what there reservations are or why they are just not interested in general.

    I wouldnt change my lights out. Even if i was going more custom protouring style i wouldnt run clear lights because i think the chrome or clear lenses on trucks and hondas look stupid. The red tail light mod ive seen a few times looks alright but i like the old school look of the car, amber and all.
