    I am, but my crazy season for my business runs through October. I have a few lenses in line right now. My goal is to increase my lens catalog. I am very interested if you can wait until this winter.

    I would need a good set of originals to make a mold.

    Mike: I don't remember. . . Are you also looking at doing the front turn signal lenses for our '66 300s?

    There is a member here from Germany who has actually made those so I have no plans to do it myself. He had them for sale on Facebook about a year ago.

    I'll touch base with him and check out the status, not too active here in FCBO.

    Hi did I read correctly that you figured out how to make these plastic - urethane clips?

    I have a 1966 Newport convertible and I need to put my pass side front fender back together, have all the trim just need those clips.

    Where can I buy them and thanks!
