Well, I found these on gheyBay. They are intended for 3SI's but also fit ours, now! I'm not sure where they really come from. IE; GTO or some other JDM thing. They do look sick though. I've been eying these suckers for a while 3000GT SL VR4 smoke color door pannel lens Stealth JDM?. They are however, originally this color from the factory. No modifications to them. I tried to see if they were ever painted by scraping one corner with a razor then rubbed paint thinner on it but no go. These are the real deal. An actual smoked cover that is died in pellet form from Mitsubishi. The seller has a lot of them so if You like the covers then try contacting him or if you know where initially they are from get some, tell us. I also heard that Diamante's came with black cover like this stock too.

Awesome find. That looks real good in our color scheme.

The red ones are from the 3000GTs IIRC.



I know it's a foreign idea for most of us here, but you might want to try taking the car off jackstands.

I wonder what the ambers are from. I'm sporting the red ones in the back and the tinted ones up front. Plan is to but a bunch of leds in the rear ones so maybe prevent my back door from getting ripped off my daughter has bad habit of just flinging it open when we're are her school.

No door jokes Steve.

I also bought a set of those from Curtis. I swapped out the lens and put an LED in the door light and it looks really cool.

The choices...






Smoked Style. These are found in the Diamante's (sorry for the crappy pic )
( Helpfull Hint, pull the covers from the rear doors, as they are generally cleaner, and less scratched.



Red lenses are found in the 3000gt/3000vr4/stealth models.

Curtiss, your suggestion of using the red ones on the rear doors is sheer genious!

Thanks to Besso, and all those who discovered this interchange!
