I wondered if you were going to get it, that thing was sweet. Are you going to track down the lights and other bits to run it?

Thing is, I had to have it... I have every other option. Years ago on Fleebay there was one, I quit bidding at $300. then the tail lights went for an additional $300 plus. then add shipping from AU to top it off.

I will probably end up vacuum forming some tail lights. I actually had a set in my hands at Candy this year. Steve( I think is his name) from Z Therapy brought them in on Sunday for me to look at.

I have some Ideas, I will play around a bit.

Also, I have the other style of rear panel coming as well. the one piece black surround along with another Tachometer.

ok so I pull in the driveway after work today. What do I see on the front porch?

This panel made it here from Italy.

But of course you know...... it was all F'd up during shipping. saw the "big bend" before I got out of the car. Snapped a few pics of the freight damage, in its mummified cardboard and packing tape. then opened it OMG . Its basically toast......


However, the tach made it out alive.. which is for sale btw. will be in the F/S section shortly.

I pick up the 6 hole tail light panel tomorrow from FedEx.. Had the shipping destination changed for this reason ... plus it needs to be signed for, and I'll be at work.

So all is not lost

I think you should keep it silver. Are the lights stock or from something else?

Yeah, either yellow, or black. I would go black. And on a few spots.. There is a fuck ton of yellow already :rofl: It could use some more of another tone. but that's just my opinion.

My OPINION would be simular to izzo's, lots of yello, maybe black. But I like it how it is now. Awsome!
