looking for a replacement of the existing turn signals.This is a 87ish Saber Seven and the turn signals are plasti-chrome rectangle about 2x3 inches with two small bulbs that act as park and turn signals that might have come from a motorcycle(?)Would like to find something similar and browsing the net has not produced anything suitable.

I don't know. 87saberseven still hasn't responded to his last topic.
Maybe he forgot where he put it, like keys. Did I leave the oven on? :shock:

Google doesn't return much either.
1987 Saber Lotus Seven returned this?

It's a Saber Seven. My ability to post pictures is on a par with my being able to fly a 747 jumbo jet. DON'T fly with me.
I will seek help in the "post pictures" department soon.

Well, fortunately not a lot of people flying on big brown but talk to the FSDO. They are "here to help"...

The H&S Sabre Seven usually had little bullet signals on the sides of the nose on short stalks. It sounds like someone put vw bug turn signals on your car.

If you have a cheap digital camera versus a phone to take pictures, they will be in a more universal format for uploading.

might not be an exact match but if you replace both it might be close enough.

It looks like what is on the car, the only drawback being the bulb is a single filiment but I might be able to gut the old ones and put them into this newer housing,. Thank you very much for your input.

These are led three wire hook up in two different size housings without the hood. I'm guessing 39188 but if your going to change them both so they look the same when lit, why not change the style?

I like the 58-63 beetle turn indicators that are surface mount and narrow tear drop chrome in either amber or clear. They are available new but are probably single filament. There are headlights that can provide the parking light function.

The lights that FieroReinke linked are the ones I used on my Locost build. They were pretty nicely built.
