    No, the reflectors pictured above he had custom made. He sent me these same pictures some time ago. If I recall correctly he had a large batch made with the intention of selling them, but I don't think they made them with the tabs on them and would have to be glued in place.

    Oh I thought they was aftermarket as I had seen some on eBay I never seen that there was any made that's cool but I ain't much for glueing them in place.

    Yeah, I just need black wheels and a fully automated artificial intelligence unit integrated into it. Of course I would also need to get a wrist watch that doubles as a two-way radio and I'd be all set...

    Don't forget the light bar on the front I know I am a fan of the knight rider shows( not much for the mustang version as I am for the trans am though both are good)the second version Michel didn't use a watch but I ain't sure as it has been a bit since I last watched it(I recorded every show)

    Read my posts above, these are not from eBay. They were custom made.

    Mike sorry for the confusion man but I did see a set like yours on eBay hence the reason I mentioned eBay (not sure if the seller is still on there or not)

    No worries. Believe me, if chrome headlights with clear reflectors could just be ordered off eBay, I never would have started this thread and spent so much time and effort on a failed project... I have to admit, it was a little fun and I learned a bit about casting.

I know there are several Escalade owners out there that have completely removed their reflectors and although it looks better, it doesn't look quite right to me since there is an obvious void left in it's place.
    My Denali had clear corners on it when i bought it, one of them constantly had moisture in it so i looked to replace them, and i could not find a new set to save my life! i looked for days online and never found any!...i found that very weird!
