Default Clear or other light mods??

Basically lets talk lights and what you want and what you think they should cost. It is not the options that are the issue usually I find it is the price. Remember there are very few of us so the cost will not be $30.00 lol. I will be having them made for my 1995 front and rear but I will need a volunteer for the 87-91 who has a little money to spend on a one off set.

I will now continue with the light cover quest as well.

I have money to spend but I need to be sure I spend it where people are interested.

First opps on the 96-99 skip.

Next the idea is to make a clear corner light. That will be easy and if someone can do it I will set up cores and offer them to people who want them...But in most cases people donít want to have to mess around. in most cases they want to just bolt on the solution.

The 30 dollar comment was in regards to the rear lights.
Custom lights will not be cheap. I am going to get some pictures of different light styles and use them to get an idea of the kind of system that looks good. Finding the right combo is going to be the hard part.

Because I have some projects that are about to complete I need a new one and so I figured I might as well start on something that is needed or wanted.

"modular" meaning the rear Tail lights for the 92-95 Bonneville...Correct? I will deffinately be one of the first ones to buy a set.!! i just dont want to get my hopes up for nothing, but if you do end up making a few pairs of these, count me in.
I'd pay whatever you think would be fair, as hardly anybody would have them and would set the bonne apart from all the rest. Just hopefully it'* nothing over say $250
I wouldnt waist my time making the clear corners because they can be self made, i understand that some people do not want to bother to take the chance of ruining their current lights....but the Rear clears are non exhistant. (sp?) Not even a custom one off job that i have seen yet. Would be *****!

the only complaint i have to the clear corner mod is it'* not a very shiny reflective surface. like the f-150 clearcorner or even the honda'* have the nice silvery metallic reflective surface.

Ok that is a great beginning.

Send me a private message or E-mail with your address and we can work out a time that I can have them picked up.
