Anybody know where to get some clear park light lenses, and turn signal lenses, fairly cheap??? i found them on quadratec but there like 40 bucks or each set so with shippin that would be like 100 bucks for lenses, and i dont want them that bad. Any ideas other than ebay?
Im just another redneck with to many guns.
Haven't really seen them anywhere else. I got mine off quadratec, they have a kit that has both the parking light and turn signal lenses together for 69.99...still a bit pricey but better than buying them seperately, plus i knew that they were DOT approved and street legal compared to something on ebay that i would have had no idea about...
Prolly ebay is your best bet. I see them there a lot.Mine had them when I bought it but they were the first thing off and sold. Looked to ghetto on my yellow jeep. Maybe on red or black they look okay. To each his own.
Putting them on a black jeep will look good, i got some for my black jeep, im just waiting til spring to put them on cause im gonna paint my flares before i put them on. If you're gonna get them off quadratec remember to get the package that includes both the parking and corner signal lenses together so you save money!
on my jeep i was going to get clear but i was in the same boat your in i didn't wanna pay that so i got some night shade and did that but if you want clear you will half to pay for it clear about 100.00 nite shade $12.00 small can of clear $3.55 you do the math!
I once saw a set of smoked lenses on ebay that looked sweet. I am painting my flares red as I have a red Jeep. I want to go with the clear lenses but the smoked ones kinda threw my decision in the air on this one. I will have to see which is a better deal.
A possible solution to seeing the yellow bulbs when they are off is to buy the LED bulb set from your local auto parts store. The are clear off as well and yellow when on. Just make sure you get the yellow ones and not the clear ones! Also if you have any other LED bulbs in your lighting system, you will probably need a modified or different relay for your signal system.
The exact relay is an EP-26 for those of you who need the number for the relay. Make sure it says LEDS on it though. (Courtesy of stu's offroad)
i installed LED bulbs on mine. If you just do the front turn signals you should be fine but if you install LED bulbs all the way around the relay senses that there isnt enough resistance in the system (the way i read the article) The stock relay has a built in feature that makes it double flash because it thinks that a bulb is out when in reality you just have LEDs instead of normal bulbs. This is just what I have found to happen. Trial and error!!!
i would not use paint thiner on the plastic. but i dont think clear lenses would look to good either. maybe on black or white but i would still go with tinted over clear. ill leave the clear stuff to the hondas and other imports. even tho i did have clear on my bmw, but now iv got black, its a black car.
But you still should put some non yellow bulbs behind them. The yellow will still show I have silverstars in the front turn indicators. The bluish hue of the silverstars goes with my intense blue paint. You can get all silver bulbs or the cheap way out is to lightly hit the yellow bulb with silver spray. I have 194 LEDs in the side marker.
