Hood Blinker Refurb

So I've been slowly whittling away at things my 68 charger needs.

I've only ever had one turn signal in the hood.  Passenger side was always missing.

So I bought one on ebay for $40 (lens, bracket, light socket, metal sconce (or whatever you'd call it)).

Problem was the lens I've always had was bleached out clear by the sun.  So what I've wound up doing (as an experiment) is to color the old, bleached lens with an orange sharpie.  I hunted around at Hobby Lobby for other options, but orange sharpie looked the most promising.

I have no idea how long this will last before the sun/weather either bleaches it out or washes it off, but I thought it turned out pretty good, so I thought I'd share.

Pictures below.
