  • Countach turn signal bucket frames?

    Guys, search didn't real reveal much. Does anyone have any ideas for the black frame around the turn signals/side lights on a Countach replica? What is used? I know how the original was done but how to copy?

    Mine are made out of steel. Not sure if i am going to reuse them or go with something else. Havent really investigated them much. I actually thought the originals were plastic frames. This steel is really heavy.

      Thanks for replying. The originals are actually brazed 'L' section brass. I was wondering if black plastic licence plate frames could be adapted. I ordered a cheap pair. Watch this space!

        Makes me wonder if a couple of these could be adapted/combined:

        The profile looks so familiar but I can't put my finger on where I've seen a similar thing.... May have to hunt around for the correct size/corners etc...

          Those brass ones are exactly what I have except made of steel (and they are rusty and nasty atm). That is awesome. I didn't even think about brass. I could measure mine but if your body is not the same size, wont really help much. You should have a lip though on your body to get the measurements from to create ones that are a perfect fit. I think mine is an exact fit because I have the original OEM lenses and they fit the lip with frame but my frames are ugly and a bit wider then this pic.
