$$$$$$$$$$$$$ WOW! More updates on Fiero GT Tail light lens!!!! $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ (Page 1/102)
kgoodyear MAY 10, 07:33 PM







Lenses are sold only in pairs.
The next step is sending the file to the tool maker where he will work with the file so he can inject and remove the lens. After that, we are going to print out a set and check for fitment. I'll be sure and include those pictures in this thread.

The lens is made of poly carbonate.
Yes, I see George is a girl mouse......
With respects to Steinbeck, Warner Brothers or who ever owns the rights to "George" the mouse.

To place a preorder, (no down payment or obligation),
1) Send email to keith.goodyear@bellyacrestudios.com
2) Select the description and the quantity.
- Clear no decoration
- Clear decorated (this is like the OEM)
- Custom decorated Clear
3) Type your name
4) Shipping address
5) phone number
Once I receive your order I’ll put you in the pre order queue and will reply to you in the same email.
Lenses are sold only in pairs. We estimate the cost to be $400 USD + shipping and handling + applicable taxes.
It is difficult to be able to say when they will be ready as the product must be perfect and certain critical business practices must be in place to protect you, me and my investments.
My license restricts me to shipping only to Canada, America and Mexico.
I regularly post progress reports and answers to questions on the PFF Forum: http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/098250.html
Once they are ready for distribution we will notify you.
Here are some videos you might enjoy in the meantime.

Goody,

You mention the lenses will be made of polycarbonate. You are probably aware that polycarbonate is subject to yellowing over time due to UV exposure, even when made with anti-UV additives. Most automotive tail light lenses are made of acrylic. If you haven't already done so, you may want to compare the properties of both polycarbonate and acrylic before finalizing a decision.

Acrylic: https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...methyl_methacrylate)

Polycarbonate: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polycarbonate

I appreciate the information. I'll pass this along to the team.

It's kinda hard to keep track with the updates, when there are SOOOOoo many threads about the lenses now. Most of them say new updates, so it is really hard to tell where the REAL "New updates" are. I personally think It would be far better to just keep one thread updated with the information, instead of so many individual ones.

Congrats by the way, the project is coming along amazingly. I, as well as many others are a bit hesitant when it comes to past history on the forum regarding tail lights and quarter windows. I am very happy to see lens manufacturing making so much progress! Kudos!

Sounds like a good idea, I think i';ll do that starting with this thread. How does that sound?

I think recently I saw tfs is selling both GT and coupe quarter windows.

I am very excited for any updates and progress. Keep up the good work! I have some space set aside on my credit card.

Judging by the quality of the proposed product and detail of information you are sharing with the community I'm willing to pay a little more to see this come to fruition.

Thank you for the diligent work.

Thanks for the interest in the project. We are going to use one thread for the project and I think that will be better. I'm thinking there is going to be some new information Monday afternoon.

Yes they are, but the GT ones do not have all the correct curves as I understand it.
