just checked my profile,guess im out of the club.:(
just watching since i have no interior.
so ive been told.not sure if im going to paint it or chrome it.
that is a cool tool, but i think the next thing is a e-wheel from low buck tools.
i don't meen to hijack but is there anymore info on this ^^^^fourdoor?
i will try that.gonna sand the housing anyway.then i was thinking how to keep the lens up,maybe epoxy it in?
yeah it kinda wanted to tuck in the middle.i think its the multiple angles that meet right there.
ok i'll try it.just cut to shape the lens, put in the oven on wax paper,then push it into the openings?
i just asked for others thoughts on these.i guess i see your point.but if its hard to figure out the difference between my previous posts and this...
well im afraid the housing might warp more than the lens in the oven.
thats my screen saver now.

thanks everyone,now i got to do some reading.
sounds like the best plan so far.where would i get red Perspex?

cool vid.could come in handy with another hobby i have.

black with a white interior,nothing more classy than a merc in a tux!
its not my car...i wish it was since its allot closer to being done.even redoing the lights.
