    The clear one is not a complete one - only a first try.

    Making your own mold and therefore your own lense? Where how?

    Called 'Fertan' for rust preparing and than 'Brantho Korrux 3-1' - every kinda color you can get it. It's rust preparing+primer..

    The floors get a sound insulation and a new carpet so nobody would see it again..also the trunk. So there is no need for me to paint it like the complete car

    What is the product and procedure. I was going to do this for some of my lens and would still be interested for the future.

    It is not so easy bit it is also not a 'witch-work' as we would say... If I got time I will try a complete lense in red. At the moment I have only a negative form of the straight lense. The second one /curved one would be the tricky one - don't know if it is possible. But if..I will sell some "repros" ..maybe in clear..or smoke.. ;)

    I know it's a before & after. I guess you don't understand English to well and can't understand the question.

    I think he just missed your question. That's all.
