Default ABS Tsi's

I dont know if you guys get these TSI's in your part of the world, but i've just finished knocking up a set out of abs plastic.
UK spec requires sidelights and indicators to be fitted which i intend to be doing shortly.

What do you think

bulbs are just hung in there at the moment. They are getting removed and LED's will be fitted in a sensible way soon.

there wont be a how to as if you have the gear to mold abs then you'll know what to do anyway, but i might be able to arrange a few sets shipped over for youy guys as i have the mold now so should be able to make as many as i can before the mold falls apart.

30 pounds = more or less 46 US$. Shipping would be surely expensive as it's oversea, even if it doesn't weight a lot.

But very good job nonetheless!

We can have him ship these out to a single location over here to save on international shipping. Then of course we'd have to ship them once they're here in the states. I'd be interested in the final setup with the lights.

Oh damn you guys dont have "Flat Rate" mail in the UK??

The shipping to a single location sounds like a good idea. Who would be willng to take on the responsability?? and more important, how many are interested??

I'm def interested, so long as the finished product allows for a bulb, a source of air, and does not look like total ****... Basically quality knockoffs.
