To make it a little more clear, current prices for my conversions.

Ready to Install, complete pair of signal housings, shipped. $250.00

Ship me yours, I convert/restore, returned shipped with new bulbs, $200.00

DIY refractor with a new bulbs, shipped, $100.00


They have a new technique I tried, the refactors in these are polished to a very shiny reflective finish, and its looks great. ALL the others I made before these had painted refactors, which did not reflect like this! It did however, add some time to complete a set. Units are restored, include four new bulbs, two 1157 and two type 89, modified to plug right into your 914 or 914/6. NO MODIFICATION to the car or its wiring harness. They function exactly as a Euro car does, the lower, clear lens portion serves as Park/Running/City Light, Amber Section Signals intention.

If you are a DIY type, this could be for you. I am willing to do this, and save you a little money. Here is the refractor built, with new socket and new type 89 7.5 watt bulbs, ready to install. I'll sell these for a $100.00 a pair, as I am running low on core signal housings. They are ready to go in, I'll even provide instruction in this thread if I sell a set. It involves soldering and wiring, and a little custom fitting as every signal housing is a little different 40 years later, but most folks can accomplish this. If your local to Sacramento, Mather Airfield, bring your signals by and I'll teach you here, where I waste all my time and money....how to wire and install them. You don't really have to blast/repaint them for them to work like this, it does help, but not 100% required. It helps to blast at least the area where the refractor sits, as it grounds to the housing, and it needs to fit tight, with good contact for that reason. 914 types have enough ground issues...

This shot gives a good idea of how much light a 7.5 watt bulb can make. Originally the cars used a 6 watt bulb which will fit this socket, I use a 7.5 as it is the most available bulb, and resonably priced. Original type bulbs can be found in a Salvage Yard, try BMW makes. I found a couple, and are still in my Orange car....they may have been the reverse lights, 3 or 5 Series. Not sure.

Mike Thank You! I can make the refractors in an evening. I just came up from the Garage, I do not have two sockets, I need to order some. Normally take a couple of days from the supplier.


Martin

Hey Sixer, Thanks for the kind words!

Hey Martin,

I'd like to do this when I get through the engine conversion, and will probably want to ship my housings to you. Would you be willing to do it that way?

Very cool mod!

Thanks!

Very interesting. Does this require a special lense? Will this fit in a Medium USPS box?

Thanks

When I started making these, I would make a set for three pairs in trade, send me three sets, I send you back a restored set, I kept two sets to restore/sell, which worked OK, but many that I recieved were unusable, corroded, bent, missing parts, etc. I still have all the rejects in a box, big box. I have given up on that method, as one persons idea of usable may be very different from someone else's. I can't sell to someone a housing thats been crushed, or so corroded that the terminal cap has no lugs to retain it. One guy sent me six housings, and all six were unusable. So Yes, by ALL means, if you have nice housings and want them done, I will do them, here, and insure you get back what you sent. I have seen a few where the original finish still looks great, and if they do, I do not paint them. Just install a refractor and wire them. I am nearly out of useable housings, so for me, doing yours (Pete, or anyone else!)is a better deal. Before you send, look to see that the contour of the sides of the housing have a unifom shape, the housing is not cracked from someone screwing in the retaining stud to far into the housing. Seen a few of those. Inspect the area where the electrical terminal cap is, to insure the lugs that retain the white terminal cap, can be re-installed and secured.

No special lense, only a normal Euro lense is required. What you see here is an exact copy of what the factory did.

Thank you to both of the buyers for these two sets, I will start tonight on two more sets, plus a display set for the swap meet. Also, if you bought a set of these from me in the past, and would like to have the refractors polished, its do able. PM me, it would not be that much work. It really makes a difference. FYI, 5 pairs of sockets are on the way.

Hello
What is the cost if I send you my usable units ?
Can you post a picture of the unit from the rear outside ? I'm curious about the connectors.

Sure no problem on the photo, its completly original in appearance, as I mentioned earlier. 100% like the original. Plug it in. I duplicated the original as close as possible. What it does is deactivates the park light side of the 1157 bulb, and wires up the 89 bulb internally. An original Euro uses a single filament bulb in both positions.

I have thought a bit about the price of a conversion, so if you ship them to me, and they must be usable, (as I am now out of usable housings) I will do them for $200.00 returned shipped to your location. I think this is fair, and it would be around a week turn around if I have parts on hand. I currently have sockets on order.

Sent requested PM, yes to all who have extras and want a restored set, look for me there at the Swap. I'll be with my SONAUTO replica. We can save you some CASH on shipping to me, and return them back to you quickly.
