Default Custom rear lights

I was wondering if there is a place out there that can make me rear lights. I have the shape made out and everything. I'm sure there has to be a place out there. So far no luck.

the only kind of custom lights I have heard of people making are LEDs.

As far as I know..
There isn't any place that can make "one off" custom tail lamps.

Best bet?
Make the inner frame out of sheet metal, make a wood "buck" for the lense shapes.

Place a piece of red plexiglass on the buck, place in the oven at around 250 degrees.
Heat until the plexi starts to sag, then once it settles onto the buck, take it out of the oven and wait for it to cool down.

Plexiglass can be buffed and polished to a super smooth finish. Just like paint can be. The only thing you'll have to worry about is the plexiglass taking the right shape you want. This is easier said than done.
