Yeah, Laci.. those euro-type lenses are the shizzy. I can't complain about those since I've got Mercury tails (all red & clear) and clear corners (with silver painted amber bulbs). :wink: I'm anti orange too (unless it's a classic).

For now.. just find some mercury tracer tail lights and paint the orange part of the middle reflector black, or use some CF-look film if that's your thing.

Well...the Lexus IS300 looks tight with its altezza tailights
this is the car that started the whole fad. that's why they're called altezzas. in japan, the is300 is called a toyota altezza.

thanx but no thanx, i was asking for help, not opinon..
i apologize. i just think they look absolutely ridiculous on anything un-toyota. as for help, like siragan said, no one will ever make them for escorts.. there really isn't a big enough market for them to make money off of them..

hahaha, actually. thats not entirely true. i was at the college today, and a '93 corolla sedan cut in front of me which had altezzas. i couldnt get mad at the guy because he made me laugh so friggin hard.

some of them do look bad but i feel left out that we dont have that chance to to make our cars look a lil better toooo...........almost every other car out there got altezza's except us we need to get someone to make em maybe the people at fx or andys might be able to help us out or maybe they could fabricate some up.........

here is a better question... how much are you willing to pay for a set. I don't mind making them but if I have to buy special equipment to do it I need to know there is going to be enough orders there to make a proffit.

ok well the 30-40 is way too low, theyd make nuthin off it. I checked what soem other cars altezzas go for, anything from $40-150.. honestly they're gonna have to be steeply priced to make them and it actually be in their favor. I would say to keep them belwo $120 at least... most ppl prolly wouldnt wanna pay more than $75. How much are the oem replacement tailights.. prolly way more than we'd wanna pay..Lol..well jsut suggesting!

:D Laci

my point exactly. For 30-40 it isn't even worth taking the time to look into it.

Again I'm not trying to be a dick. Because obviously I'm out there to make products for you guys and make a proffit off you. BUT I don't want to spend my time trying to produce something that will not sell for the price I'd need it to. Especially when I can make things like Turbo down pipes, headers etc right now :)

Tell you what I'll start looking into it when I get back from camping this weekend and I'll try to get an estimated price. I'll bet its going to be higher than anyone wants to pay... but I'll at least figure all that out and we can go from there.

Thanx for at least taking the time to even see if anyone would want to pay what it'll cost for the tailights... thanx

There's no Tracer tail lights that will fit a hatchback Escort.

Laci, You knw what you should see? The taillights on a Ford Laser (Austrailia market) The car is the same as a US 2nd gen escort. If you had those lights you'd have a real unique car!

Well now that I look again the lights are the same as ours. But the other stuff is different and the front is different too, including the headlights, depending on model. Look! the wing is different :!:
