Dale,
I did the exact same thing with mirrored plexi but I opted for Green & Red mirrored plexi so it looks like my nav lights are on even when she is sitting in the hangar. Turned out great! Will post photos when I figure out how to share images from Google Drive

Ha! Not a bad idea! I didn't even think to ask if they had colored and mirrored. Oh well -- I'm not about to make those again! My biggest thing was wanting to get maximum effectiveness from the strobes. Well, that and have it look good.

If you hit me up about 5 years ago I could be of more assistance. Here is a company I found from a Google search. I have no knowledge of their products or customer service.

http://www.interstateplastics.com/Ac...01404081951-1p

BTW my wing tips were the "old style" so we had to cut the light coves into to tips. That is why they look a little like Frankenstein Tips. But painted they look AMAZING.



One more note. My Green/Red LED's are automotive and have worked flawlessly since install. Each LED with base socket is about $15.00! Sure beats $1,200 for Green/Red Aircraft LED's.

Here is a link to the lights.

Here is a link to the Base. Yup $1.00 each:

Default N168LW is Airworthy

After my second engine run on 5/18 and final tidy-up on 5/19, I got my airworthiness on 5/20. No issues during the inspection. Now, I need have the test flight plan finalized and get that long awaited RV grin.
