They are worth however much someone will pay you for them.

Given how difficult they are to find, and that no more have been made for quite some time, though, they are $$$.

If you have pics it would be easier to evaluate ..... fastback tails are expensive ... are they fierostore repos or oem ? right now NEW tails should fetch between 750 to 1000 I have a pair NIB OEM not letting them go gor under 1200 to 1400 .... I also have another pair that are undelaminated and no cracks that will be on Ebay next week that have Full LEDs (doublec4 kit) including reverse LEDs starting price will be 1100$

regards
Danyel

My understanding of this is that TFS had a company make them with Pontiac OEM original molds ..... then the manufacturer went bankrupt or simply closed and the molds were lost ..... maybe we could get the fiero store to comment this and tell us the name of this company that skrewed them over

There must be a way or contact info to find the molds or / and equipment that
made these taillights. That was the only "gold break" to have the fiero store make
the batch they did produce, ever.

If they are somewhere, there is a chance.

If they are destroyed, then we're screwed.

If someone could just make a completely clear lens and let people paint their own, they would make some money.

So you think $500 for brand new lenses is a good price point?

Post pics here and we can help you ..... are these OEM or Fierostore Repros ?? Alot of the repros had defects in the lettering which may affect price. If these are OEMs I would start at around 700$ and put them on Ebay .....you'll be suprised.

From what I've seen 500 would sell fairly quick if they get seen.

I suppose it depends upon how many you want to sell.
For $400 a pair, I probably would buy a pair. (Thinking about the Fiero Store "unblemished" replacements. They had some at one time.)
For repros, probably not. But it depends. Especially if I had to do more to them before installing them. (But then, my car is far from stock, and far from spotless.)

At Danyel's prices, you might sell a few. At a more reasonable price, you'll probably sell a bunch more. I guess it depends upon how many you want to reproduce, where your "break even" point is, and/or how much of a killing you want to make off of the pieces that you do sell.

Edit - Keep in mind that I am "that guy" who sold a T-top Formula because I was unwilling to get raped for the cost of replacement parts.

Not trying to hi-jack your thread but have a couple of questions about the Fiero Store repo's.

If memory serves me correctly the TFS repo's where only the lens itself. I was looking at a set of cracked lights the other day and was wondering how the old lens was removed and the new lens installed?
Has anyone replaced their lens with a TFS that can explain the process?

If you look at my video you will notice my tail lights are full LEDs with OEM lenses. To insert the LED kits the assemblies had to be takin apart. there are V shape tabs that lock the lenses on and also ALOT of black silicon type gook sealing the lenses on. I will suggest to you to do this seperation once the tails are room temperature to help in releasing the seal gook. Whenn cold the gook is harder. I used a hairdryer to warm the lenses around the seal. I used a flat plastic card to insert in between the V shape tab and the rear assembly. If you try to pry up on the tabs they will definately snap off. The plastic card used to insert between the two was a cut out piece of plastic from a 5 gallon plastic bucket. I pushed them in between using a pair of needle nose pliers. Once all tabs have the plastic card inserted in between the lock tabs I used the hair dryer to heat the seal makin it easier to seperate.... will post pics later ..... take your time or else you'll snap the locks .....

Danyel,

Thank you for the reply.
What do you use to reseal the lense with?
I have a lense laying around here that I am going to try a few products on but it wont matter what the out come is if they can't be resealed to the housing they came off of.
