Side repeater idea

so ive tinted my side repeaters but dont think they look that good,i have also opened some up and taken out the orangy bit and sealed them back up,i also think these dont look that good.

So what im after is any other ideas to try ? i would llike to weld a plate in and remove them completely but that is out of the question at the moment.

Ill upload pictures either later today or tomorrow so everyone can see



EDITont suppose any repeaters of other makes/models of car will fit ? i bought some of ebay that were for a barchetta,and they look the same as thee punto ones in the picture but was a little to small when the came

Re: Side repeater idea

Dont need to be welded, I used araldite and a circle roughly around the same size as the indented part, sanded both back to bare metal and stuck it in place.

How about you do the LED wing mirror mod?

i would love to get rid of them totally and do the mirror mod you did,but i would have to get the panels painted professionally as i dont trust myself to do it

Im thinking of taking them apart again and painting the insides the same colour as my car,then sealing them back up,what do you think of this ?failing that they will have to stay standard

Re: Side repeater idea

remember you need a side indicator to pass an mot if in blighty
why not modify the hole to fit something nicer like a vw gulf clear indicator?

Re: Side repeater idea

Take them out and put some mini machine guns on there with LED indicators so it passes the MOT
