I assembled and installed my tail light lenses the other day. It was easy, fit was perfect. And it looks great, fabulous actually. Very happy.

Nothing fancy, mostly stock 88GT, high mileage. I love driving it though.

Most of the butyl tapes I have found are too wide and must be hand rolled to reduce it's size. The windshield setting tape I have on hand is 3/8 inch square.

This material is what's used for attaching the door moisture barriers. It's already in a 1/4 inch round roll and is narrower than the channel on the tail light housing. One roll should be able to do both tail lights.

George said that after all the trouble he and Keith went through to bring these lenses to market, he's not letting them out of his sight.

It seems that George has been mouseknapped!

I do not post in this thread much. Just wanted to say how amazing this has become. Thanks to those involved.

It's nice to see the detail, but could you reduce the size a little to fit the screen? It makes reading the rest of the thread a little difficult, having to scroll side to side to see the full text. Thanks.

A word of warning when ordering this through NAPA. Even though their online ordering idicates the pricing for 1 roll, and that's what I ordered and paid for, when I arrived at the store to pick it up, they said NAPA wouldn't allow them to sell an individual roll. I had to buy a case at $256.00.

I took my NAPA receipt to O'Rielly's Auto Parts and they ordered 1 roll and price-matched NAPA's $12.20 price even though they list it at $25 per roll.

I have a fix for the yellowing o we time on the polycarbonate. I am a Detail shop manager and IDA certified detailer of 25 yrs. There is a ceramic coating that is used specifically for this purpose, it’s chemical composition is pure silicon carbide. The product ensures no loss of gloss or degradation from UV exposure including yellowing. It should be applied when new to get the maximum benefit, but corrective wet sanding, then compounding can be done to expose a perfect surface for the coating application on used parts.

Product name? There are a few "ceramic nanocoats" out there designed for automotive paint and even wheels.... if you've used this stuff for years without any issues, knowing exactly what to get would be a benefit.

The stuff I have seen was called F11 and the owner had been using it since he got the original lenses and I was really impressed!!! I don't know if this is what TTop was talking about but nevertheless I was really impressed.

I received THE call from Keith on the evening of Thursday, January 10 as we drove to dinner. I found his email and quickly paid my money. I received a shipping notification early the next morning (Friday) and received my new lenses a few minutes ago (Monday, January 13)! The packaging is solid (double-wall cardboard with individually wrapped and padded lenses placed in such a way that it would be almost impossible to harm them opening the box). However, it looks like one of George's assisatants got a little too close to the stapler during the packing process. I promise we'll take good care of the little guy. Thanks George (and Keith!)

OH WHAT FUN!!!! Surely would like to see some pictures after they are installed. We were wondering where George's cousin went. Cheese--lots of cheese!

So I am extremely late to the game - I have not been of the forum and really too busy to read thru 25 pages of responses. I got thru the first three pages. Is there a single link to a website to order these, or do I need to follow the directions on the page 1 post which more than a year old?

I would like to buy a set as a spare set.

One can cut to the chase by sending an email to keith.goodyear@bellyacrestudios.com. Include your name, shipping address, cell phone number and finally the quantity. That will get you on the list.

I'm patiently waiting.
I have been in communication with David, and have already finalized what I need. Told him that I am not in a hurry, but I am excited nonetheless.
I'll post pics when I get them installed. Will be... different.

Keith, I see you’re putting out feelers for making notchback lights. I don’t have a notchback, so sadly it wouldn’t apply to me.

Would you ever think to reproduce the backs of the tail lights? One of my tabs is completely broken, and two others are cracked!

There are so many notchback cars available for salvage that making a part that is not in high demand is futile--as far as a profitable enterprise. Even with the current demand for lenses i am cautious in thinking there is room for profit.

It's a vinyl wrap film made by Vvivid. The Vvivid Hex+ wrap can be applied the same way as vinyl wrap. I applied it to the inside of the lens, heated it to set the adhesive, and trimmed it.

You bet. The lenses (p2) have arrived and going into storage in Chicago tomorrow. Why Chicago? Because that is where they are decorated. There are 12 pallets of lenses. Man! that is a lot of lenses. You have to help me sell them now please! The sooner we sell these the sooner we can start another project.

It's just a very subtle addition to the lighting. When everything is off, the lights will appear darker than normal, and there will be a faint pattern. I have a darker version of the tint, but it was too dark to get by without risking a ticket.

Wow, I feel fortunate that I was part of the P1 group!! Payment was easy, shipment was quick, and lens look fantastic. Best part, is that since these lens will be my spares, I no longer have to get nervous any time I or an object gets within 5 feet of my taillights

I'd actually use these as your daily drivers and put your OEM ones away safely.

Well Sir Mr. Goodyear; I'd very much like to advance your sales, maybe here on the East Coast as an outlet, however I'm not prepared nor able to provide a suitable business/property that would meet your standards. Also as I've stated & shown on this forum I'm "NOT" the most computer savvy person. Granted, my wife's been on me to go to Tech for their CFD course which I just haven't done. Too many other projects pop up. And I truly believe you have a super grasp on the Fiero needs(things that need/could be re-made, that is @ a profit), that my scope/vision may not compliment yours. I believe between the Fiero Factory, The Fiero Store & your outlet & a few other folks making Fiero stuff, we Fiero fools are well served. With Respect. Rick

Look forward to getting my lens sets.

Thank you for the feedback. It is still undecided if we are going to take on another project. It really depends when my investment is returned and if the profit I make will support another project. Having gone through all the steps I feel confident in doing another PolyCarbonate project for GM. There is also a chance GM may have a project they want us to do. That would be an interesting challenge. But, first I've got to get my investment returned and prove myself to my financial advisor.

I'll just drop these here.





Aside from wanting to showcase Goody's lenses, I'll ask everyone a question...
This is actually a test fitting.
One reflector is chrome. The other is painted white, in all bulb positions.
Does anyone care to guess which side is which? Or state an opinion for which side looks brighter? (I really can't tell a difference, but it's pretty bright in my garage.)

Dang Raydar, It's hard to distinguish the difference, my guess is the pass. side is backed by the chrome reflector. No matter, that looks super.

Lol! I dunno about the lumens emanating from the lenses, but I'm bright enough to see the difference between those lenses and lenses that fit MY Formula...

Looking at the pics, it's hard to tell. Heck... standing behind the car and staring at it, it's hard to tell.
The right side is actually using white reflectors. Standing behind the car and looking at the glow very carefully, the white reflection seems to be more uniform, from near the bulb, to away from the bulb.
The chrome reflector tends to be marginally brighter, but concentrates the brightest part of the reflection to the area right around the bulb.
I'm doing them both in white, but I wouldn't recommend going go to the trouble, if you don't have any reason to. (Like both of your reflectors are in good shape, etc.)

Of course, if I go to LEDs, the story may change.

Anyway... didn't intend to hijack. Get your orders in! I don't think you'll be disappointed.
