Grafting 911r signals

I see people with grafted in 911r front and rear signals. Are people using fiberglass or fabricating metal signals? If they are how difficult is it to fabricate these metal pieces?

Cheers,
Farrell

i know where to get the parts, what I'm saying is are people using the fiberglass parts for grafting in or making their own custom metal pieces and welding those in?

just curious how the fiberglass will hold up long term to grafting.

thanks all

Pretty sure people are just 'glassing in the fiberglass turn-signal housings, as opposed to fabricating and welding in metal housings. I think it looks a million times better when grafted in. I think there is a short movie of Nakai-san of RWB doing such a "grafting" - check the thread by "Royze" over in the main forum...

as for molding it in that's up to you and what ever works best for you .
personally I like to use metal when molding into metal .
if done right you could use fiberglass with good results .
there are two part adhesives made for bonding FG to metals we have used them many times with out any failures .

Excellent replies thank you. I'm not great with metal so glass may be best for me at this point. But as I devolp more skills with metal fabricating I'll use that.

Thanks again all
