KARR's New Taillight Lenses

Last March I came across a post on the Fiero forums mentioning that a member, Keith Goodyear, was working on recreating the Fiero GT taillight lenses. These have long been discontinued by GM, and there is no aftermarket part to replace these.

Everything he was posting looked very promising, however, this is not the first time that someone has claimed they were making these only to have it fall through or end up a scam. I remained skeptical, but could not resist adding my name to the waiting list. 

I was contacted by Keith last week and he said my lenses were ready to ship. He explained that there was a delay in getting the licensing through GM finalized, but everything is in order and they are ready to go.  I sent him payment and he told me they would ship the next day. Now I was getting really excited!

All of his posts detailing these lenses have had this little mouse named George on them. It's like his mascot. As you can see this was inspected by George.

These really do have GM's approval. They are an official GM Restoration Part!

He calls attention to the fact that there are instructions included...Instructions and support are always a good thing, so this is promising. Let's get this open!

These appear to be packed very well.

There was a hidden surprise in the box that actually made me jump...

It's George the mouse!

Here are the included instructions.

And a closeup of George.

Keith included two packets of the recommended cleaner for the plastic lenses. There are detailed instructions on how to properly clean the lenses.

Here are the lenses. Each was wrapped in protective plastic.

The lenses look amazing! They are very crisp and clear. There are a few artifacts that need to be cleaned off, but I cannot wait to get these installed. Hopefully we can get these installed this next weekend.
