    Mike:

    On the F40 I built 20 years ago I used mitsubishi 3000 or dodge stealth mirrors looked great and they are break away mirrors as well.

    I see Norm uses these mirrors.. They are plentifull and reasonable..






    I dont know if these will work for the tail lights.. Not realy what your looking for but available and reasonable.. They dont have amber/clear or all red.. But they do have red with clear centers..

    Hello Mark,

    Norm had emailed me and said he had F40 replica mirrors, I asked for picts but never got a reply yet. TR88 hopefully will be able to send me picts of the mirrors he has. I considered the ones below, but would rather go with some that look more authentic.

    A friend of mine runs the local auto repair and body shop classes for the comunity college if I haven't mentioned it. He will be able to help with some things when I need it. He builds custom cars on the side and I plan to tap his brain and build the most accurate replica F40 interior ever seen . Shouldn't be hard since they are so basic.

    Got my powder coat gun last week, pick up the oven today. Will post picts once my stuff turns out ok :P. Will start with engine stuff first. Bright red and yellow accents. Playing around with adding a turbo.

    Not going to give up on the rear lights any time soon. Still have a ways to go before they become a serious issue. So will it be fairly warm up your way in June???? I hate the cold. ;D
