1. Even if you could make your own how would you propose to make them optically correct. After all a tail light lense is more than a piece of transparent red plastic.
2. Why do people put clear tail light lenses on a vehicle, then put smoked covers on the headlamps?
3. Asa, if you're an L6 kinda guy, why do you have a V8 avatar?
Thank you for allowing me to free associate.
1) i'll assume it's for nospeed_12 to answer
2) cause they are idiots who don't actually think about what they are doing
3) several different reasons actually
a) cause i'm different in a "special" way, if i could find one as an L6, i'd use it instead (for some reason, most people don't like inline six engines, don't know why...)
b) cause while i'm partial to L6's i like just about anything i can wrench on
c) cause it's cool (for more info on this one, please see #2 above)
it'll change in a month or two to something else though, soon as i find something else to distract me
anyways, it works for now, my current mode of transport is a PITA chebbie
'86 model, powered by a fire breathing 4.3L beast!
soon as i get home on leave i'm gonna drop that thing off at my dad's and get my truck
