Have the first assembled front turnsignal boards in white. They look real pretty. Can't wait to see how they look under the lens.

I like the italian lenses on my yellow car. Being an Italian-American I run Italians on the front and US on the rear. Never mind the fake Italian warts!

This is what the Italian's used for their side marker.
Quite different than the US version.

Based on the arrow, are they directional?

Looks the same size, but not reflective. A downgrade in my eyes.

To me, there is a big difference.

The US version (middle) and the clear lens (whatever that is? never made for the Italian market) don't look good at all.
They've both got that crazy rectangular shape in the middle and the area where the screws go look horrid.

In comparison, the Italian lens (right) is very nice around the screw holes and is a bit deeper orangish/red than the US lens....although this may not show that well in the pic.

The Italian versions are very rare as they were made for a small number of cars in one European country only (Italy).
Thus they are super difficult to find.
I've been on the hunt for the left side for at least 6 months now.

And yes, I believe the arrow is directional. The other two lens don't have that small detail.

And no, the Italian lens is not reflective.
For me, that is not an issue as I just want mine to light up at night.

Jerry,

I'm running Italian lenses with your boards. Would definitely be up for checking out the white PCB boards.

Gary, your boards are amber only, correct? If so, I haven't built up any of those although I will if you want to try the white boards. If you want ones with white LEDs that's ok too. No charge but you have to swap them in a timely fashion, send some pictures and send the green boards back to me. PM me your contact info. I'm looking for one more green board volunteer to try these white boards.

The green boards were cool when I first designed them but now with black or white boards available, the green boards don't look good under clear lenses. That being the case, I'm thinking about having a buy-back of sorts for the green boards if you want to swap them for white or black boards. Your final cost for the boards will be $60. I'll start another thread about this.

The first white front turnsignal boards are assembled. They look real nice. These ones are heading to @Coondog . The plastic frames have been updated to better fit in the fixture.

Absolutely. Right before we changed to black colored boards I had made up several sets of green boards and had them sitting around for more than a year. Sold those at a loss. I'll be selling the greenies I get back for $50. Quite a deal. I have Coondog's greenies for sale now. These boards will come with full guarantee and support.

right


the bi-color for Europe
the white for Italy

the side one is not only for italy, but for europe
it was only for turn signal and not for position light. So is not reflective
