    That's a cracking idea!
    Does the technology/process allow for printing the lens in two colours? Obviously I'm thinking of the rear light lenses.
    Plus, you would need to add the reflective element internally.
    Anyone with access to this kind of facility?

    I've made part of mine but as per usual, another unfinished project. Look in Facebook for eventorbot, mine's a modified version (eventually)

    I can make the side repeater lenses easily enough Steve, but not done anything about the rear light units.
    Folks seem to be getting hold of them still for their new builds

    Not worth the cost of tooling up for side repeaters?

    And someone is making the rear light units too...

    This looks like one of the first set I had. If it is then the original lights, if you can find them, are far better made and more substantial. I found that the original lights can be polished and brought back to life if they've gone matt and opaque.

    Umh, yes, certainly the reproduction rear lights leave a little to be desired.
    The lenses seem ok to me but the bodies and especially the wiring terminals are not good.
    Of course it's the lenses which get broken and the reproduction lenses can be seen as a source of replacements.
    I've tried repro lenses on OE bodies and they do fit.
    I've yet to look at 3d printer type machines which John H suggested were worth a look, but that tech is surely moving on and we might be able to build light unit bodies economically before too long.
    My side repeater exercise was a bit low tech.
    I had a mould made for the Orange lenses which works well but never got round to finding an LED indicator unit which could be canabalised to provide a base for the lenses.
