Clear bumper lenses

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've bought some clear indicator side repeaters and I wonder if the 4 orange lenses in the sides of the bumpers are available in clear? I've done a reasonably extensive search but so far have drawn a blank. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Russ

Hi, you have drawn a blank because there are not any clear ones!  So it's orange or body colour (like mine).

Thanks Simon, that's an option! I'll see how the new repeaters look with the orange reflectors and make a call then :wink:

Hi.

    I have been looking for clears since I got my car. No luck whatsoever.

I like the look of the body colour matched ones. Where did you get them Simon? 

    Cheers

I own a laser cutting company and could cut some in clear / silver mirrored acrylic or similar. It seems easy enough to pull the orange reflective bit off the base which could be retained for the clips etc. The advantage of the mirror is that you won't see any adhesive used as you would through the clear, although I could engrave an opaque finish on the clear to negate this. If I have a chance to play with this I'll post some pictures :wink:.
