      It's only an inside joke if someone else gets it. ;D

        JW sold all of his molds for the 355 to Bartman on this forum. PM him and he can get you any parts you need.

            I happen to know that Don is away on vacation for about 2-3 weeks, so don't be worried if you don't see a response for a while.

                  I now have the first set of these headlights in my hands... and I guarantee there is nobody on this forum that is happier than I am right now. These things are PHENOMENAL quality. The work Don has done on these is unbelievable. The brackets have all been smoothed, the finish is ready to spray with paint, and glass is thick and sturdy. I can't wait to get these on the car.

                  wow... just wow.

                    These were many years in the making, congradulations. We expect to see this being added to your build diary!

                      Hey guys;

                      I am sitting on a cabin balcony on the Carnival Magic. This is one freakin' big boat boys........ A bit more comfy than my navy days as well.

                      We are just getting ready to sail out of Venice right now. The tug just pulled up below me at the aft end and is hooking up.

                      I am glad you like the headlights Toby.

                      Keep sending me emails about progress so I can make sure I get everything sorted out so when I get back I can make the sets fo rthe other committed buyers.

                      I'll post a pile more pictures and a price once I am back in Canada next week everyone. I have a price in mind due to the work but I want to make sure it is fair for everyone and me for my time to build these. These are supposed to be an affordable optoin for the hobby but I also don't plan on taking up my time for free.......

                      Talk to everyone next week when I am home.

                      Cheers
                      Don

                            Toby is installing the headlights this week and should have some feedback for me.

                            One items we did find out right away is that '88 Fiero motors have th epushrod pressed on whereas theolder models have an e-clip which is what I was designing for. I am currently sourcing some nylon washers and sleeves so that I can not have metal to metal contct fo rthe pusrod. I had some out in Calagry but Voctoria is small enough that the stores I would getthem in out in Calagry are small enough here that they don't carry the same stock.

                            I have to find a source I can get a couple hundred of each at once so I don't need to go out and get them every headlight set.

                            If all goes well with Toby's install, I will have a price and availability list within the week.

                            As a starter, I am looking at charging $650.00 US for each set. Not really cheap but still way lower than oem. You buy the Cavalier headlights since the States are much cheaper than I can get them for up here.

                            I will post what you will get with each set once Toby confirms that everything works.

                            Thanks
                            Don

                              Update on the headlights;

                              As usual with everything for me, it is taking longer to build the confirmed sets of buckets than I had hoped. I am 80% complete the second set of headlights to go out to a customer. I have 2 more waiting behind him to finish up.

                              On a positive note, Toby sent me some update pics of the buckets installed in his AD 355. He says they fit like a glove and the install was very easy. A couple minor tweaks for me on the new sets but everything else went well. I am sure Toby will add more pics to his build diary but I thought I would get some pics out to everyone with what the lights look like in the up position. I have more of the buckets in the closed as well but not here at work.

                              Cheers

                                Two more for now.

                                I am very happy with the way these have turned out. I think the installs will be very simple for folks. The AD kits should fit in with very little effort and the other kits will vary depending on how close to oem the designers got with the front bumper and finders..... I am sure my own panels will cause me great grief since they have for everything else.....

                                Cheers
