    Post Front Lens Repair/Lens Color Change

    I am not aiming at keeping my TA for more than 1 1/2 year, thus, didn't want to fork over the bucks to by new lens. Anyways, I replaced the socket, greased the bulb tips.... drill 3 holes above and below the housing thinking the water will dissipate.... I was freaking wrong, for it rain over here, water came in, shorted/burnout bulb and stayed in the housing.....Bad move I did!

    At any rate, I sealed up the drilled holes, purchased a large tube of GOOP Adhesive Sealant. Ran a thick bead around the housing to reseal the lens to the housing.........Goop- $3.97

    I went beyond that and purchased 5 purple hard plastic folders from OfficeMax for $1.50.... only used one of those folders and did this to change the color of the lens:

    Thumbs up Blue Is Super!

    Was wanting to do it with Blue....... but the 5 folders in different colors costed $4.50 and I didn't want to spring for it.... blue would look good for any color vehicle... make sure you get white bulbs, not the stock orange color ones.

    By the way, maybe you can get all five in blue instead of purple........ then you can share it with another TA owner!!! Like Me!!!
