Just wondering if anyone makes a blank for the front fender turn signals? i am doing a more European signal on the fender and would like to replace the original with a blank to cover the spot.
thanks

For the round ones you could just paint over them. The ribbed ones will take some creativity. Maybe shorten some quarter panel pieces.

I think you could get a couple of rounded door trims cut them to size and put them in the place of the side markers..... the only issue would be getting them to stay on .....

Could fill in the ribbed area and build it up as needed with SMC I bet then sand it round.

I'm afraid you're going to have to make them yourself. No one makes anything like that. Also make sure you check legality of where you are. I know you're in Canada but for instance US DOT states that signal indicators need to be amber, even if encased in a clear lens.

The best way to make them would probably be to take a mold of everything, lens and all. Then from that create a new piece that you could slip a clear reflector-style lens into that you can glue or secure - probably rectangular heavy duty truck light lenses meant for reverse applications that be cut to size would work best and be cheap.

1. check Canada and Provinces "DOT" rules.
Marker lights and turn signal are required in Canada. Close to same rules as US DOT and many states.

2. check EU/UK/etc "DOT" rules as reference. Most post here in past said EU Type turn light behind front wheel still need a marker in front of wheel. EU setup separate two functions, needs 2 bulb and different area for each. US/Canada flashing marker, like Fiero and others, is illegal in EU and won't pass inspection.

To import US/Canada Fiero in UK etc, they need to:
cut blue wire to the marker
ground socket side of cut so bulb is on when park circuit is active.
reroute car side of cut wire to new turn signal bulb.
New fixture need to be EU spec. Can't just use anything for new turn signal.

i am going to have a side marker just moving it from the regular place and changing the light style. i will be staying inside the legal parameters of all DOT regulations.
just need to find a way to cover the spot where the original ones were.

You could always put the part in a silicone mold and cast a new part out of a 2 part resin.
