    Do you mean the entire set of lenses, frames, and the bucket part that holds the bulbs? If you can find them they are extremely expensive.

    I think you meant to say “No”, rightfully so.

    Why? As I have lost track of whether I'm actually down for a set as I haven't paid for them. Apologies Stan if that seems rude/inappropriate. I meant a list of board user names only that are in the queue.

    Regards,

    Rohan

    Hi Stan. Kudos for your outstanding efforts.
    If I place an order am I able to work directly with him? I'm in Australia and it would save you the trouble of adding me to the list.
    I don't, however, want to push in front of those already waiting.

    Hi Stan

    I'll be in the states for a week in November, is my turn up?
    I'll be in San Diego much easier to ship than Istanbul.
    but I wouldn't want to take anybodies turn.

    Thanks

    I asked to be on your list a long time ago, but then lost track of your posts and progress. I still want a set for each side. What are the chances of getting a full set?

    I have a set, and they are worth the wait. Just got to get a set of frames rechromed to have perfect tail lights now. Oh, and then to make the rest of the car look that good.

    Stan,

    I just rediscovered this thread. Could you please put me down for a full set?

    Also, do you have the euro rear fog?

    November 14th 2017. I just received an email from the guy who makes the lenses.
    The nature of the delay is as follows...
    When he pops the lens from the mold it must be warm so it will not crack. As they cool, they distort slightly. So, then he needs to warm them up in hot water and place them on a jig that is the shape of the original lens so they will cool in the correct shape. (Note, this was done but one of the guys who bought lenses from me when the turn signal did not fit just right but he used torch)
    I can get 6 lenses now if anyone wants to take them and use their tail light frame as the jig.
    Let me know or we wait until he has time to work with them.
    Thank you
