    Would anyone be interested in clear USDM bumper lenses?

    I don't think anyone makes clear versions of the usdm front bumper turn signal / parking light lenses, and I wanted to try my hand at casting some clear versions.

    Just curious if anyone would be interested in some?

    This tutorial shows with dye added, but I wouldn't add any.

    You know what,, I'd actually be interested in a pair if you could keep the price under $30, I can't really justify paying much more than that though.

    If you could create some clear style tail lights or replace the orange corner pieces with red, that'd be hella cool.

    make some clear cheap JDM kouki lenses or dyed ones, you'd make a killing.

    To be brutally honest here, I don't see a market for USDM clear lenses. I also don't see a point in making JDM ones as they already exist. They may be 120 USD on ebay, but I'm sure they don't cost 120USD in Japan.

    I would encourage you to set up a group buy if you decide to pursue this, that way it isn't a waste of your time and money.

    Oh, the tail light corner might actually be do-able! I was able to pop my zenki lenses out of the tail lights, and IIRC it wasnt' too complicated of a piece.

    Well, as soon as I have time maybe I'll make these and generate interest with results :P
