Thought Nis-kacks has the bumper leneses. I swear there was instructions somewhere I saw them before. Try searching the archives. I know its somewhere, maybe on one of the sites on the webring. It was like go get some from a junkyard, so you dont screw up your stock ones. Take the lens off and use it to cut a piece of plexi glass like it, then take and rough up the back with some sand paper so you cant see though easily. Something like that. But they wont be as good as the stock ones because they wont be reflective.

I contacted nis-knacks and they said that they dont sell them and they dont know of anybody that makes them. They suggested to make them out of flourescent lighting material. I took a trip to home depot and picked some up. It is really thin so i cut out and glued 3 sheets together. they look great. Now i have to sand them down with my dremel to a perfect fit. the only thing im wondering about is how to connect them to the lighting fixture. I might use some clear silicon and just have to pry it off when a lightbulb burns out, one thing is for sure, im buying new bulbs before I seal them in.

I gotta better idea, go to a hardware store and buy a couple of those driveway markers that are on the poles with the circle reflectors at the top, those should work great!!!

yeah thats exactly it! i think they look really nice with the red in it tho, so it doesnt really matter, i really wish some company would make them for our cars, that would be sweet! but on the other hand, every NX would have them and they would be played out real quick and then we would just be straight out rice! that would suck

What do you meen "every nx would have them" I see maybe 3-4 nx's a month in cincy ohio. I dont think I see modded ones but maybe once every 6 months unless its a listmember at a meet

but on the other hand, every NX would have them and they would be played out real quick and then we would just be straight out rice! that would suck[/B][/QUOTE]

I think that the NX is so rare that they could never be riced out, besides who cares, I used to drive a honda and it is so nice to actually have a selection of parts to choose from, and not just stuck buying something because this one company is the only company that makes it, ya know? who makes an actual catback exhaust for the NX2000? Remus is the only one that i have ever seen. and i think remus sucks! I dont want that **** on my car. but it is cool that the is so underrated and underlooked.
