I can find a TON of "stick-on" vinyl and acrylic's that stick on with tape but I'd REALLY prefer actual replacements. Anyone know of a source? (and yes, I have searched here and other places)

You want to replace the reflectors with non-reflectors?

You mean like these? View attachment 278022 the expensive ones from ACS Composite, if so. Most just get the precut window tint kits. Easy to do and has lasted years.
Yeah, but I screwed up. I actually got the side markers but I can't find the rear bumper reflectors. :( I could live with out 'em but....

I see my link changed...maybe not allowed. There was a button option to order the rear reflectors only from them. Hope this helps.

I did notice that - they want $150 just for the back, but I may spring for 'em - thanks.

My local Tint guy covered mine for a butt load less than they want for the replacements over 3 years ago and they still look great. They retain the reflective properties too.
Now I NEVER thought of that! THANKS!! How long did he need it for?

There is a clear coat to use over it as well. Do it layers at a time, a little sanding and clear coat. Here is an example. And there a re tons of other YouTube videos.

There are a bunch of options. However, one thing to consider is if you don’t like the way they look for any reason or a local LEO determines they are in violation of the VC, you can’t just peal off paint and go back to stock without buying new replacements. Just a thought.

LOL - hell - we don't even have inspections here in Fla. If it's running, has doors and lights and you've paid the State? Go for it... But point well taken with the paint. Thanks

It's not technically "Paint", and it comes off easily with brake cleaner.
