Guys I have had success in replicating C5 indicators. The rear indicators black backs are 3D printed & the lens cast in [color=orange]tinted resin[/color]. I will sell pairs of rear indicators for £50- on a first come first served basis, 1 pair per customer initially. As the bulb holders and wiring are taking further time to make I will give preference to anyone sending me their black backs with bulb holder and I will supply & fit new lens at a cost of £35- per pair. I will sell a pair of front indicators for £10-, these have [color=orange]tinted resin[/color] front and backs plus foam backing piece. P&P at cost extra on orders please. Anyone wanting to order please email me and I will confirm acceptance of your order. If you are not satisfied with the product I will refund the cost less P&P once I receive them back in the same condition.

Karl Potting, or what I called resin casting, from moulds I made. The black backs are 3D printed.

Hi Ray, your terminology is better than mine, I've been here too long. I had this in mind a couple of years ago as I'd done a lot of this for other items, I also had a discussion concerning this in forums other, but was put off because of the problems in producing the electrical components. Wish you all the best, and if someone here requires some I'll put your name forward.

Markysan posted:

I got my indicator set and Im very pleased with them. The resin quality is good - I'm just going to buff mine up. The casings, fixtures etc are well made. Can't ask better. Like all things you need to fettle it to suit when it's not factory made. But I think Ray has done a top job and as my restoration gets underway these will be added for a fraction of the cost of the EBay rip off that's going on. Wish someone would do mirrors as prices for them are all over the place. Hopefully Ray is rewarded for his efforts and not the greedy eBay type folks. Cheers mate 👍

Hi Marksan I to have ordered a set of indicators off Ray. I have also bought from the Greedy people on EBay. I have purchased over the tears a few sets of indicators, still boxed. These will possibly never be fitted to a c5 as I class them as collectors items. I don't class the sellers as being greedy when they to me as like most people I will pay what I think they are worth, if things become rare then the price goes up. Mick

Ray1 posted:

Markysan Thank you for the feed-back. If buffing be careful not to locally overheat the lens or it will distort.
