3. take deep blue clay off of original reflector piece, and re-insert the reflector into the mold
4. pour more silicone on top of the "inside" of the reflector piece (which now has no blue clay on it)
5. ....how do i take it out w/o screwing up the mold?...do the "inside" and "outside" molds not get stuck together since the outside is already dry?

i apologize in advance for being so confused.

Cheers

You got it exactly right.......since the mold is silicone it will bend and twist without bracking so you can take out the reflector easily.........there is a product called mold release that prevents them from sticking but I did not find it necesary......if it makes you more confortable you can get some, it comes in both brush on and spray. I recomend you get the spray kind so you dont have brush strokes on your reflector

To the OP,

I think im speaking for the general population of us, but ACTUALLY making these for the average person (including myself) is probably not very realistic, so with all this interest, are these babies going to be sold? I'd buy a set right now personally.

I agree with everyone here... get a vendor account and sell 'em man. I'll for sure buy a pair.

I know it was said that the OP didn't have plans of mass-producing these things, but does anyone know anywhere that would sell them?

Well bummer, I've searched all week for the silicone mold and no one within 100 miles of me had it! I guess I'll have to just order it up from Micromark.

One more attempt at seeing if anyone knows where to score the finished product?

I just saw this, excellent work earispe! We definitely have some clever and talented people on these boards.

I was just playing with an idea after reading this...you could conceivably make yourself some decent bugeye clear sidemakers. It would be quite involved but I'm thinking if there's a way to pop the amber reflector off of the stock sidemarker, you could make a clear copy of it and pop it back on the stock piece.

I'm not sure if they're glued and or clipped on, but how cool would it be to make some nice ones yourself that blows away most of aftermarket crap!?

I remember reading about something similar in an Eastwood catalog and thinking, "yeah right" but apparently it can be done.
