Looks great!  Very professional!  Did you change to the amber turn signal for personal prefrence or is it a requirement in Australia?

Hi Bill, thanks for that. Yeah unfortunately here in Victoria Australia, to fully register the car on the road it is a requirement for amber turn signals. The stupid thing is, if your car is pre 73 you don't have to. If your scratching your head wondering what the difference is between a pre 73 red turn signal and a later model, i don't blame you. Lol.

That amber conversion looks absolutely great. 8)

I have just been directed to this page from TA Country.  I live in England and need to convert to amber turn signals as well.

Is there any chance of me getting my hands on a pair of those amber lenses? 

I was going to cut my original lenses and glue in some amber strips from another old lens.

Jeff,

I got a very helpful email from David with photos, asking if it was the parts I wanted.  He gave me a link to his ebay page which was listing amber lenses for 74-78 and 79-81 cars.  I have now bought a set for my '79.  Lets see how it turns out.

I cant see a problem with the quality of the parts, but they do have to safely travel halfway round the world!

Thanks again for the help

I will certainly let you know how it turns out. 

I will try and take some photos of the car soon.  She isn't pretty at the moment. Mostly stripped and ready to start complete resto.  Been left standing for 10 years due to marriage and house purchase.  I will start a thread in the restoration section as soon as I can.
