Reproduction Rear SX4 Marker Lenses
« on: February 02, 2014, 11:43:01 AM »
I make reproduction marker lenses for the SX4 and can now officially say that they are for sale.

This is only the lens portion of the light. The backing plates are not included. If enough people need the backing plates, I may begin reproducing them as well.

I have a few on hand, but will mostly be taking orders. I am currently producing stock, red with silver painted lenses, but am also willing to make custom colors to match your needs. Custom colors will cost more and take more time to make as I will need to order different dyes as well as make samples to get the color right and will be priced accordingly. If I do not have the ones you want in stock, there will be approximately a 2 week lead time for me to make them. Unfortunately I'm stuck at college most of the time and have to get all my work done when I have free weekends.

To order, please contact me via messaging on the Den or email me at [email protected].

Prices: (all prices exclude shipping)
Single Lens: $30
Pair of Lenses: $50
Custom Lenses: $65-85 a pair

Custom lenses include the black lenses. If you want another color that also falls into this category.

See photos below that compare the original piece to my reproduction light. I took great care to attempt to reproduce the light perfectly in terms of clarity and color accuracy. IF you desire something else, let me know.

Stock on the left, Reproduction on the right, Front side:


Reproduction on left, Stock on the right; Back side:


Stock with backlight:


Reproduction with backlight:


Perfect reproduction on the back, each pyramid is exact to the stock piece:






Options, I can make clear, red, or custom colors/finishes such as the blacked out lens (that still light up) or an opaque lens.

Unfortunately I don't have a running Eagle, the engine is out and the wiring needs attention, so I can't actually put them on my Eagle to take photos of them.

Here are photos of the different lenses mounted on the backing plate with a ceiling light shining through them. This is unfortunately about the best I can do at the moment to show the way they look when lit up because of not having a running Eagle.

Huh, that's funny. I like the black actually, but I don't know how it'd look on a maroon sx4.  I'll defiantly look into this though.

They do look great.
I don't need any quite yet but would like to get a spare set when I can. But would have to first figure out which color to go with (stock, clear or black) tough choice as I think either one would look great on mine.

I have improved the mold I use to make the piece, as a result the lenses are much nicer looking and no longer have any rough edges.

Kammbacks too if I'm not mistaken.

I had one guy complain about these not being good because the silver is painted on as opposed to being chrome. Does anyone know for a fact that these pieces were chromed originally? To me it seems like it's just some type of paint as it comes off the stock lens fairly easily. I've contacted multiple chrome shops that specialize is plastic chroming; however no one will take on this job because it would require making a metal mask to cover the parts not to be chrome. The only place I found that would do it quoted me at over $600 in set up costs!

I do believe the originals did have the chrome plated on.  When I ordered mine from Kennedy American several years ago, he noted that these had the silver painted on, as opposed to the originals being plated.  I think the ones you are producing look great.  Certainly better to have something that is 99% close to original, than having a broken lense or a missing lense.  It's not like Eagles are entered into contests where the judges get all anal about something not being original. We'll leave that for the some of the other classic car owners, while we get to actually enjoy ours!

Great work on these.  I'll be picking up a set set, interested in seeing what a clear set might look like on my Kammback.

I don't know who complained about the silver paint. but I was one who complained that the surface was "dull". I would like to add that I was sent two more lenses that were far superior in appearance. They were shiny and new looking. I was completely satisfied. They are painted silver as described, not chromed, but very well done. No complaints from me on this product. They will go great on my Kammbacks. Great seller and product. I wish he was making bumper ends for Kammbacks as well.

Yes the originals were "chromed". And yes the reproductions that Kennedy sells use silver paint. There are several new "chrome" type paint or coatings available that might look closer to the stock chrome. Heres a site that list 6 different processes available.  http://www.thehogring.com/2012/10/16/6-ways-to-transform-plastic-into-chrome/

I've looked into a lot of these methods, unfortunately, they all seem to have one draw back or another. The reason I've stayed with the paint I'm using at the moment is because it seems to adhere to the plastic very well and since it's automotive paint, it should be good for quite some time. I would love to use the stretch chrome, however I've heard some people complain about it peeling off. When the surface area is so small, I'm fairly certain it wouldn't last more than a year; especially if anything hits it.

The companies listed there were some of the ones I've contacted, they declined me all together if I remember correctly.

Hahah... True. I plan on trying to make a metal mask myself so I can get them chromed over this summer, however I'm not certain I'm going to be able to make it work. I plan on working on reproduction spoilers and bumper corners first.

Sounds good! Just let me know when you want to order them. I plan to start work on the spoilers soon, I'll be posting about that once I get a good finished product.

If you do the spoilers, it would be nice if you made them so the keyed lock would be accessible. That would eliminate the need for the trouble prone electric lock.

I think the quickest way to get your question answered is to email captspillane at the email address he included in his post.  Good luck, that would be pretty cool looking in the orange color!

Thanks Van Gremlin, he did get to me through email. I haven't been on the forum in a couple weeks. There are several people waiting for the next batch to ship out and I'll have it out soon.

It is interesting that in Europe they would not pass the side markers in red color or in clear. I will be mixing to figure out the amber color used up front to make a matching set of rear lenses. Soon I will be reproducing the front marker lights too, mostly because I want to make the blacked out style available. I'm actually using a red set up front intended for the rear of a J10 truck because I don't like the orange color.

Let us know if you hear anything on these lenses.  Captspillane has not logged into the site in two years, although many people have tried to contact him for a variety of reasons. He did provide an email address a couple of posts earlier in this thread.

If you don't have any luck with him, try Kennedy American, they used to sell them, I'm not sure if they still offer them or not.  Good luck!

I make reproduction marker lenses for the SX4 and can now officially say that they are for sale.

This is only the lens portion of the light. The backing plates are not included. If enough people need the backing plates, I may begin reproducing them as well.

I have a few on hand, but will mostly be taking orders. I am currently producing stock, red with silver painted lenses, but am also willing to make custom colors to match your needs. Custom colors will cost more and take more time to make as I will need to order different dyes as well as make samples to get the color right and will be priced accordingly. If I do not have the ones you want in stock, there will be approximately a 2 week lead time for me to make them. Unfortunately I'm stuck at college most of the time and have to get all my work done when I have free weekends.

To order, please contact me via messaging on the Den or email me at [email protected].

Prices: (all prices exclude shipping)
Single Lens: $30
Pair of Lenses: $50
Custom Lenses: $65-85 a pair

Custom lenses include the black lenses. If you want another color that also falls into this category.

See photos below that compare the original piece to my reproduction light. I took great care to attempt to reproduce the light perfectly in terms of clarity and color accuracy. IF you desire something else, let me know.

Stock on the left, Reproduction on the right, Front side:


Reproduction on left, Stock on the right; Back side:


Stock with backlight:


Reproduction with backlight:


Perfect reproduction on the back, each pyramid is exact to the stock piece:






Options, I can make clear, red, or custom colors/finishes such as the blacked out lens (that still light up) or an opaque lens.


Black lens with backlight:

you still making these?

The seller hasn’t logged onto this site in about nine months. Best bet would be to drop him an email at the address listed a few posts up. Good luck!
