I did some work on the headlight project today
I知 happy with the covers; there is a small gap on either side which allow for adjustment.
The progress on the buckets is not as fast, but I believe that I知 on the right track.
I知 hoping to get everything done and ready for sale by May.

Thanks

Little done this week-end on the GTS project
I知 still working on the development for the buckets and will more then likely go fibreglass instead of plastic as originally intend.
I am working on 2 different designs and hope to be able to offer both.
Also still working on the covers, I like the one shown previously,
but I am trying to develop a squarer and tighter one so it look more like the original one.
I will keep you update with pics if I manage to do something better.

Thanks

Last week and this week-end was very productive.

Cover
I知 working on a new cover mold (again ), it need little improvements but it痴 a much better / tighter fit.

Bucket
Big move forward, but it will be more expensive and better quality (fibreglass) more to follow.

Thanks

I will get pics of the fibreglass Texas Performance GTS Buckets whit in the next 2 weeks
and price should be in the same range that Eric had.
Would you be interest in Carbon Fibre buckets instead of Fibreglass? Not at the same price obviously

Ok, so the approximate prices at this time are:
- Texas Performance GTS buckets - uncut fibreglass: $150
- Texas Performance GTS buckets - uncut Carbon fibre: $250
- Texas Performance GTS buckets - cut ???

- Lenses cover (any color): $125 (this is the price that is more subject to change)

I still have to:
- Tune the lenses cover right side mold for better result
- Built the lenses cover left side mold
- Figure out and fix a small production issue for the lenses cover
- Working on second bucket style, more OEM段sh without the lip all around
- Find the mounting hard wares need for the buckets, covers and 4x6 lights
- Test everything


Base on the buckets production price, I will not be able to reach the target price I previously post (it was $300 shipped USA/CAN).
However I知 doing my best to keep the price as low as possible and fibreglass or carbon fibre will provide a better quality product
and are better suited for the application.


Feel free to post you comment as I知 doing this mainly for you guys

Let’s test the water!
If you are interest in 951 cover lenses, please speak up by posting:
“Yes, I would be interest in 951 cover lenses”

BTW this is not a contract; I just want to see how many would be interest.
Thanks

Lexan will last longer , it forms easier and dont break as easy when you try and form it
In other words , it is not as brittle
