Hi all, I recently bought this rare turn signal. The seller had only one piece and he didn't want to sell it.
I had to pay a large amount just to convince him to sell it and hope I get another piece in the future.
I was thinking now that I have the original piece, should I talk to a manufacturer and see if I can reproduce these?
I don't know how much it will cost or how long it will take, as I have never done this before, but its just a thought💡
Therefore, I made a poll, to see if anyone is interested in this project.

The lenses appear to be similar to the early double sided lenses. Some of us 40 guys would be interested in a set of Repops. The 40 lenses were stamped kioto l1046 and l1047. Doesn’t look like there are any stamping on your lenses. I will try to get a measurement this weekend on the lenses

I'm interested in the two sided Tuna cans for a '62 FJ40, but they had a shorter base like later one sided tuna cans. So a set without bases would work for me.

I was of actually thinking of reproducing it, but then I got a message from a friend of mine, @Arabian Cruiser, saying he has already spoke to some manufacturers and he is going to start work soon. Therefore, I don't see a reason for both of us to work on the same project.
Here are some pictures from his fender lights:

Received the turn signal a while back but didn't have the time to upload pictures.
Here are some pictures from different angles.
