Smile Re: Red Turn Signal Lens

Hi KA5367,

I tried for quite a while to find some red lens for my rear turn signals indicators w/o success. I then purchased a pair of clear lens and tried red bulbs in them, but I was unhappy with the look. Then I followed a suggestion to spray the inside of the lens (either amber or clear) with transparent red spray paint (Testors makes one and I believe Krylon does too, either stained glass red or candy apple red, but be sure it is transparent). Spray several light coats, allowing each coat to dry before applying an additional coat of paint. It works beautifully. By spraying the inside of the lens, the exterior retains its hard durable finish. The look is red whether the light is on or off. I have been very pleased with this alternative.

Hope that this helps.

Re: Red Turn Signal Lens

I researched this a while back. I don't think red REAR turn signal lens are illegal anywhere, but yellow tail light lenses are, But yellow, like we have stock is fine for a TURN signal. You may be thinking of a discussion we had last summer where people were modifying the rear turn signals to be always on as an extra set of tail lights. However RED turn signal lens in the front are illegal everywhere.

If you are ever in doubt, look at truck lighting. They love lights and have to go through many states. They have yellow in front and to the sides and only RED light showing to the rear (and white of course for backup lights).

In most states, the other accessory lights you see people use like blue/green for marker and accent lights are illegal. Still you see people doing it though.

Thumbs up Re: Red Turn Signal Lens

Hi all - I just received and installed a turn signal conversion kit from "Electrical Connections". Thank you Dianne... As I'm sure many of you have seen and may be familiar with, it's a very simple circuit that adds red LEDs inside the turn signal and makes the amber lens become red for running and braking, and they remain amber for turning.
Great accessory!
