Clear Tail Lights

I want to get some clear tail lights for my AU Sedan in the same style as the Mitsubishi Lancer Gen 2 ones. I have emailed ozeparts and they don't have them and I have been to emtechautomotive and they only have them for the ute. The girl at the counter just said. If they made them, we would have them. I don't understand how they make them for only the ute. Can anyone help me get them? Does anyone know where these lenses are manufactured?

i understand it's your car and all, but why on earth would you want clear tail lights???

now i'm not going to say the 'R' word, i'm sure their are plenty of other people lining up to do that, but i cant understand why you would want to make a big aussie car look like small japanese one.

oh well, each to their own.

The reason the ute ones are readily available is that they are common to a few models throught the Ford world (F150, etc), so the demand for them is there. I would imagine that the demand for the unique AU sedan ones would be too small to make them cost effective to manufacture.

If you have an AU1 with the orange indicators, you can change these to the AU2 with the clear indicator lenses. It's quite an effective look, and definitely not as ricey as the ones you are wanting!

The reason I want clear tail lights is the same reason anyone puts a bodykit on their car or a nice set of mag wheels. Just for fun. I want the tail lights because I like the look of them. My girlfriend has them on her car and they look good.
I would change my existing tail lights to the series two type but only people who know about fords would be able to spot the difference and the extra money at the moment just aint worth.
My car is already a bit ricey already but who cars. I have the Hawk front spoiler, which doeas look fine aswell as the series 1 bodykit a double rear spoiler.

And on the note. I bought the extra spoiler for looks but it ended up having other advantage. It makes it easier to see when reversing and at night time it is in direct line with peoples head lights behind you. I would recomend anyone with an Au to go for the double.

And also, do you think it would be posible to purchase the headlights that where on the 300+ Coupe on PFMagazine?

Look at the new cars on the market, the Mazda 6 has clear rear lights... its becoming the norm lately...I think it would look good on a falcon..

There was (still is?) a guy in NSW (Newcastle?) that was making custom and one off clear tailights, he had a website (can't seem to find it now, could be down or maybe I misspelt it??) , something like

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

Re: Clear Tail Lights

don't be afraid to try something "different" i think i heard someone on here say in their signature... i think clear tail lights on a falcon is a nice change...who wants to have a modified car that looks the same as the guy down the road? making your falcon individual to other falcons is something that should be done since everyone in my town has boring lowered big exhaust big wheeled falcons...

there is an inbetween i guess, so as long as the rice stuff doesn't look too "wrong" ..... keep it sane but make it as insane as you can if that makes sense...that includes engine body interior etc...

good luck lukez
