    He's not producing taillights that have no breakup in them, like the "clear as glass" ebay lenses you see people getting. He's just making a factory reproduction with no red/amber dye added, so it still retains the factory style diffusion. But you will need correctly colored bulbs, or leds to remain within the law.

    No problem I was just about to order marker lights and I am interested in clear as my car will be silver soon. I will hold off on the order until lrader99 gets his pricing posted.

    I remember, I am sad to say all those great post and pictures have been lost. My image host got bought out and no longer will host images, they have become a cloud based image storage sight. :(

    Been rebuilding a '98 T/A for a friend all week. This thing was leaking from every seal. Replaced every bushing with urethane, replaced rack, trans getting a rebuild, rear end is getting all new seals and bearings, etc. It will be a nice T/A again when I am done.

    Will get back on the lights this weekend.

    You got that right.
    I see them on so many different cars and trucks. Dunno why, as it isn't for good looks that's for sure.
    Mix the clear tail lights with the 20"s+ and rubberband thick tires and I get a huge chuckle out of them.
    It's like a 16 year old hot rodder whose only knowledge about cars is Hot Rod & Car Craft that he has been reading for 6 months arguing with a 50 year old Hot Rodder who has been actually doing the garage work for 35 years. I know I was one of those 16 yr olds nearly 40 years ago. Now I'm the 50+ yr old Gearhead.

    To each their own on what looks good.
    What looks horrendous.
    Tats don't look good.
    Ponytails on men, worse if they are gray headed.
    Clear Tail Lights, fart cans, big rims rubberband tires.
    Several other things,
    Like the Made In China label on anything but Blackcat Firecrackers.

    Thats the nice thing about this site. Opionions are like a$$hoz everybody's got one! Those lenses will look good on some cars but not all. As a Camaro owner I thought it was protocall to have tattoos and a mullet? LOL Is everyone not complying?
