A few ideas- Tell me what you think.

Well I finally pulled a prototype Clear FC3S sidemarker lense off my mold and I am pleased with the results. While the creative juices are flowing I figured I would throw a couple ideas out there for things I would consider making for the FC. If anyone wants to chime in with the product you are interested in from the list below, if you agree with the price, and I will go from there.

Clear Sidemarkers- s4/s5 universal- $35-$40 pair

S4 Clear Front turn signal lenses- $60 pair

S4/S5/Vert Clear 3rd Brake light- $35 each

S4 Tail Light refresh kit- $40 (allows removal of orange lense ONLY with replacement with clear lenses, does require you to disasemble the tail light)

FTP LED retrofit kit- $99 (requires cutting/sealing the FTP lenses)

I guess that is about it for now... Keep in mind this is a Product development thread, NOT A FOR SALE THREAD!

Those clear side markers look amazing.

S4 refresher kits are a good idea too.

What about all s4 tail light sections in clear?

Back in the day.....i had clear lights in the back of my s10, they looked really good.

In the rx7, with some red led bulbs you would probably sell a lot. I would probably switch back to s4s.

keep up the good work , man.

I made these last year.. S4 shells with lexan lenses.. I can pretty much do anything with plastics..

I never finished a whole set because I didnt have an Rx7 to put them on the surrounds needed to be painted.. But you get the idea..

The FTP led sounds interesting, how bright will the leds be, or could we opt for lights instead? I'd want to wire the ftp's to be running lights whenever the engine is "on"

headlights are too bright, noisy going up for just a quick need for light, ftp with bulbs would give enough light

I was thinking of having a LED strip rectangular in shape just a bit smaller than each section.

I think you clear sidemarker looks great. Except that its clear thats just personal preference though. I would like reproduction amber ones.

I would love to be able to buy amber front turn signal lenses for my S5 as well

Also new FTP lenses or whole assemblies. I've never priced them from Mazda but I'm assuming they cost alot.

Reproduction rear sidemarkers would be nice as well.

What all can you do with plastics anyways? Because I could throw ideas at you all day for plastic injection moulded parts. PM me sometime. I'm thinking repro interior pieces, but with a more modern but tasteful look

I would be interested in clear markers all the way around, they are much easier to smoke than the orange ones which get way too dark to be functional.

Are you still gonna do this?

Can you post a pic of the clear front and side markers installed on your 10AE? Can you get a corner shot with them both in the picture? I want to see how they look on a white S4.

Are you doing the clear sidemarkers? I have jdm ftp lenses and euro spec turns and those would just finish off the whole look for me.
