Yellow headlight lenses
« on: December 24, 2012 - 02:56:25 pm »
Hi all,

I have a 71 cuda and want to install yellow lenses on the inside headlights. I see some of you have them on your challys too (brads70). Where do I find them? Also want to install the "yellow" lenses on the lower driving lights as well. I think they look great and really set the car off. Thanks for the information and this is a great site!

Thanks Brad - exactly what I was looking for. I think they look way cool as well. Your car looks fantastic!

I want to match up the driving (fog) lights too. If any of you guys have the yellow lense driving lights please let me know where to get them.

Do a google search on Ford Mustang driving lights. I think they were amber?

I coated my H1's with see through yellow vinyl.  The stuff is sticky and lasted the entire cruising season - I just replaced the vinyl when I put the car away for the winter.  The stuff is cheap on e-bay - Like $6.00 for 4 sq. ft. cheap.  I did it this way because I did the headlight conversion (H4 / H1) and didn't want to replace the new lights - which work better.

Seems Ma Mopar liked the look too. Pretty much the same visual thing on the new Challengers.
