Altezza style lights for the BG?

Hi,

Does anybody make the Altezza style lights for the whole back of the BG Astina's, similar to those on the older CRX's. I haven't been able to find anyone that makes them

Thanks.

being a flat faced style of light you could better off buying a set from the wreckers and doing a custom job yourself

You need to seperate the lens from the plastic body which most do in an oven. Then its just a case of building the lens assembly. Too much effort in my book - Ruprewrecht would be best to comment as he is building a set of altezza-style lights to suit his hardtop.

nah the ones i'm making arent Altezza-style. but you could make the hardtop rear lights very very easily into clear ones - as all the color inside the lights is a separate piece behind a clear outside casing

someone in norway made clear lights for the BG - look for a pale silvery blue BG with a kit

Yeah I want a set of altezza's for the BG too, buying a set from the wreckers and trying to make clear ones sounds like a good idea.

Hey there, 8)

In The Netherlands me and some other Astina freaks have made our own Crystal rearlights. It is very easy and fun to do. When you got 2 right hands and be a bit creative this will be goodlooking.

The pale sivery blue bg as Rupewrecht means in this topic: is that the car shown at this link??
http://members.lycos.nl/darichman/al...umb_00046g.jpg

When this is the one than i can tell that i`m the happy owner this is my car.
I try to find the link on our Dutch Mazda site about how to craete them yourselfs. Including al pictures step by step.

See Ya Christian

ThanX,

For the compliments. The color i used is the Y variant of the Alfa Romeo color "Azurro Nouvola" code AR414B. I have plenty of photo`s on my harddisk of the car in this jacket.........???!!
For those who want them, please sent me your e-mail adress. Or i can sendit to one of you who wants to place them on this forum?? Just let me know.

Yes a small kiss with a huge street licht last winter made my Astina look like a Banga racer. The bonnet, nose, pakfeifer bumper, radiator etc. all was damaged at once. Then i decided to make a complete makover again on the same car. He`s Lambourghini green now and wearing Toyota supra rearlights. And many more modifications have been made to the body.

I go and find some pictures online for you people.

See ya, Christian

Yes !!!

I`ve found the link to create your own "Cristals". This is to bad a Dutch site, so reading it will be hard for your people. But maybe you can have some at the pictures matching the describions. And if you need to know some more about materials and or something else you can always ask me.

there atre about 10 Mazda Astinas (323f called in europe) in the netherlands who are wearing this lights at the moment. Even here they beg for Altezzas. They are working in Austria to build the Altezzas for the Lantis. Thats whats been told in the magazines around.

Just check this out: http://www.home.zonnet.nl/g.vanderstappen/index.html

and hit left cornered "Project" and then hit the yellow text under the 9 pictures of the Astina.

Stil looking for the links with photo`s of my green Astina. I do have digital pictures but i don`thave my own site to place them......

Grt`Z, Christian

I always thought that shaved (or filled) door handles would look awesome on the BG and I was RIGHT!, not really sure about the tails lights, but its great to go for somthing different. Thats the sort of ride hight im after, what size wheels are those and how much was it lowered?
