Alright. I'm working hard to make something I know most all of us USA peeps really want. Its been a long trial and error project but I think things are finally coming along.

Bare in mind this is Prototype #1. I have a lot more to accomplish (Smoothing, clear lens, mounting, and finish. I just really wanted to share what I have so far.

The prototype and final product will be made of Polyurethane Plastic with UV resistant Clear lenses. The final project should be about 3/8" thinner than the original ones so to provide a more flush look and Euro look. They wont be white either.

Sorry for poor photos quick iPhone shots.

This is the Prototype, Front

I agree. I think this is going to be a really good look. I'm very curious how you are going to make the clear lens.

Probably a stupid question, but what light is this? Driving, Fog, or Backup?

I want to add fogs to my Kiz sometime down the road.

Uforaverwill : lol thanks! I real work in progress that's for sure.

Autopiolet ; thanks. Well I'll have a lot more info about it once it's done and I have them for sale.

Jblanchard5 : in the states the kizashi has a side marker on the side of the front bumper. They are ugly orange.

Just letting everyone know that I AM still working on these. I have not forgotten hem. LOL. I'm currently waiting for my second prototypes to come in.

I have modeled them in 3D and am having them printed. I should receive them by the end of this week.

Once i get them I'll be able to start producing them.

They will be black with clear lens. They will have either a metallic or chrome reflection behind the lens. They will also be about a total of 3/8" thick that's about half the thickness of original.

I'm really looking forward to getting the prints in.

Hey, good on you. That was the first thing I said to the dealer, was that the orange lenses were STUPID! lol

Me too. I was like "Do those things come off?" I thought they were just reflectors. He tried to explain how useful they were. Needless to say, I wasn't convinced.
