New design, improved orignial 550 tail and turn lights

Postby WasserSpyder » Tue Sep 17, 2013 6:52 am

I recently received our first production run of a NEW and IMPROVED original style 550 taillights and turn signals.
Our new proprietary design utilizes an original style lens with 3 "tangs" that secure the lens in place, and a water tight o-ring seal. This allows for easy assembly without any glue/silicone/etc... It just snaps in place.
Likewise our bezel and base have matching "tangs" that allow you to easily remove your lens/bezel assembly from the base by rotating it about 45, yet securely locks it in place for driving. (quick and easy bulb changes)
The zinc coated base was redesigned for a standard GM 1157 socket.
These are an exacting copy of the original lights, and priced at $300 for a set of 4 with all hardware, seals, and bulbs included. That is priced almost $100 under the "glue together" style from other vendors, plus we are offering an additional 10% off for SpyderClub members.

That is a great price. I've often thought of adding a set screw or two to ensure mine never fall out. But no glue, and so far no issues...

Got any pics?

Here are several pics of the new assemblies:
You can see the 3 detents in the bezel. The tabs on the lens are more difficult to see in this pic, but you can see one clearly.

Fernando, We usually ship the same day as payment, but your payment came in at the end of the day, so it will ship today.
We got your e-mail at 8:05 PM last night and Kevin sent a reply at 8:08 AM this morning. Please let me know if you did not get it. Also, please contact Kevin or Brad at my office because your Paypal purchase and payment is only for ONE light. This is no problem IF you only want one light, but if you want a PAIR of turn signals you need to catch them before they ship today.
Thanks -Carey
