    Countach Tail lights

    Does anyone over there know where to get hold of taillights for the Countach?
    In Australia, they're as rare as rocking horse shit...
    Genuine you pay $460 each side ($AU) if you can get them.

    Im told the Alfa Romeo ALfetta 1.6l 1976 Lighs are the same, but cheaper.

    I dont want to use the Suzuki lights, so can anyone help me find some?

    Have you considered the old Chevette lights? They're not perfect, but they're a whole lot better than the Suzuki lights.

    Re: Countach Tail lights

    The previous owner of my project used the Suzuki lights but decided to cut them apart and added a bit of red tape to the backup light. I think they came out pretty good! In this picture I faked where he put the red tape with photoshop. The reflector is really red, not amber, like the pic makes it look. 8)

    Here's a pic of the first gen Chevette lights. I think I paid about $10 for the pair. I'll see if I can find a better picture. The camera flash is hitting the reflectors on the reverse lights, they do not light up like that.
