    Last email suggested 20% for the brake lights so if that holds
    So now the price for a whole set would be about $312.00 and usually about $15.00 for the box and USPS anywhere in the continental USA

    i think the question regarding whether anybody is still in refers to the 6 people in post 314 ... then after that the 4 people in post 315. and so far we have seen the yes response (public) for 4 of the 6 - the other 2 may have responded privately. of the next 4, 1 has publicly responded yes ...

    You are all still on the list. I asked for another 10 complete sets. I don't want to overwhelm the guy. I have 80 people on the list. Some want more than 1 set

    Got your PM Dave...
    All, The package has tracking and is now in Queens NY USA. Of course winter storm Quinn has brought everything to a standstill.
    Last week I had fantasies of driving my coupe, now there is a foot of snow on the ground!

    not to speak for Stan, but it probably depends on where you are on the list. if you are new to the list ... i hate to say it, but it could be a while.

    Based on my experience with the guy making them, you are a year away. These lenses are very difficult to form properly and all the work is done by hand. Frankly I am amazed he charges so little. The bottom line is I get about 10 sets of lenses every 6 months or so. I can put you on the list. There are 80 on the list but I have sold to about 30 so far.

    Stan,

    Thanks for your efforts on this critical part! Can I get (or be added to the list) for a set of right lenses (My left is stamped Heller with German inscriptions)

    The lenses are for a RHD City Pack CSL.

    Many thanks in advance, David

    The lenses are the same for CS, CSi, and CSL as far as I know.
    I will add you to the list.
    Clear back up and amber turn signal - right side only? The amber may be a bit more amber than the 40 year old originals due to sun fade. Sure you do not want a whole set?

    Thanks Stan

    The left side is almost new so isnt faded at all.
    Happy to pay for lends both side and never hurts to have a backup and if the colour doesn't match we can replace.

    Thanks again
