    How to make colored tail light lenses?

    I thought I saw a topic here on how to make colored tail light lenses. I have an original Mercedes Benz 300sl Gullwing lense and want to make new ones. Does anyone have a web site or info on this?

    I'm just getting into making plastic parts for the HVAC project, but I see that you can make lenses with the plastics that I'm using.. The clear anyway, you can dye it to make it whatever color you want. The stuff is from Alumilite. Link to the page where they show a lense --> http://www.alumilite.com/application...tion=view&ID=4 Cool stuff, can't wait to try it! Apparently you need a pressure pot to cast perfectly clear (no bubbles) plastic, but that's not terribly expensive...
