Red Inner tail light lens
« on: June 13, 2018, 05:43:38 PM »
Is there any way to just purchase the inner red tail light lens for the fog light without having to purchase the whole assembly?  Anyone willing to part with one they aren't using?  Darn NA tails don't come with them.  Thanks...

Any custom lighting shops near you? I assume you are the one in Tampa, FL? I know here in Portland OR there are shops that take both front and rear light assemblies apart to mod the lighting. I'm sure any can take them apart and add red lenses. Extreme Auto Lights are in Tampa...got to be more.

Or,......red Lamin-X  :grin:

I have the one rear red fog with a Euro switch. I can't count the number of times people come up to tell me that one of my back-up lights is out.  :stupid:

Yes, I am in Tampa.  The fog light lenses apparently just pop out once you remove the bulb holder and reflector from the inner tail.  There really isn't any dismantling required.  The clear lens and the red lens are identical except for color and are interchangeable. I was hoping someone would have one left over from a mod and was willing to part with it.

Ah...yes, that is how I got my rear fog....someone had it on theirs but returned to stock bits when they went to sell it. Good luck. I would consider taking the clear lens into one of those lighting shops and ask if they got ideas "on the cheap".
