Subject: Re: Clear front turn signal lenses?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
At least in California, the vehicle code states that orange or clear turn signals
are okay. Many pre mid-1960's cars have white turn signals. But then, we have no
vehicle inspection program here either. (But we do have a biannual smog check)
As far as not being DOT approved... well, you can't have it all.
