BA Clear Tail Lights Are Here!!!

Well, love them or hate them, the first of the clear tail lights for the BA have apparently arrived.

There are 2 styles available - one with all three bulbs in round enclosures, and the 2nd with the blinker still in it's rectangular housing surrounded by the brak and reversing lights in circular housings.

Don't know the manufacturer at this stage, just found them on an e-bay auction for $319 a set

For those interested, here is the LINK

Re: BA Clear Tail Lights Are Here!!!

triple circles are too much like magna/monaro....

Falcon Killer (if you believe what Ford Service Departments have to say about me)
AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...

Have to see them in the flesh but until then my opinion is they are until deemed otherwise!

Re: BA Clear Tail Lights Are Here!!!

Chrome ones might look alright on white or silver, but on colours like blueprint and Blood Orange I think they might stand out TOO much.

Tend to agree 3toed - but would like to see them on a car in the flesh before I make up my mind completely.

Re: BA Clear Tail Lights Are Here!!!

Hmm I don't know if I would put these on the falcon. Hard to know what they would look like on the car itself but im not really a fan of them anyway. Maybe someone can photochop them onto a car. :)
