I manufacture and sell them directly through my website or through California Corvairs and Clarks. Instead of cheap plastic and paint, they're built with heavy gauge aluminum and with high-reflectivity reflector material. They look and perform better than the originals!

My site: RacersRods.com, product FC-1

Clarks C13258

CA Corvairs p/n CC18017R

Please check them out; I think you'll like what you see. smiling smiley

As a testimonial. Craig's reflectors are a really nice addition to the rear of a FC. Good quality. Compliments the taillight assemblies by filling in the empty sheet metal recesses inboard of the taillights,and the piece of mind knowing that you are more visible at night is worth the price alone. Every FC I will ever own will have them.

Pedigo, are those the units offered by cnicol above? If so, what is the advantage of mounting them with screws?

Yes. No advantage to mounting with screws except to say that this is how the original GM reflectors were fastened. You can just as easily use double sided tape.
The screw holes are already punched in the aluminum base for either mounting option.

Before and After photos of my Rampside, using Craig's reflectors mounted with auto body trim tape.

I went back on forth on whether or not to use screws, because screws give a "stock" appearance which I prefer. But this particular tailgate never had reflectors previously and therefore had no screw holes, and I decided not to drill.

They really do look great. Mine I used the screws for the original look. The one advantage to screws is the reflectors are removable. Much more difficult to remove with trim tape or double back tape.

I had a friend ask why would you ever want to remove them? My answer.. Be happy the factory didn't think that way!

Finally added a set of these to my rampside. While it could be said they are too nice for it currently, I added them for the practicality. Been driving it a lot at night and early morning so figured they were a good thing to re-add for safety. This truck originally had them, of course long gone. So I mounted them with the original screws. Thanks for making these Craig!
