Dallas, if you are referring to the amber light, I have one if you don't find one closer. You can have it for postage. Dave

I can probably make one but I thought someone may have one with a broken or missing lens.

Dallas;
You might want to take Dave up on the lens 'just in case'.

I've thought about getting one of the modern Beehive lamps just to have the ring as a spare. I think they're the same size.


Dave;

The picture Dallas posted is my car, I added the lamps a couple of weeks ago. If you have a spare glass lens I'd be interested in buying it if Dallas doesn't take you up on it.. My big concern with using these lights is if I drop a lens! I love the lamps, and I can see myself dropping one.... I had one roll of my bench while I was getting them ready to install and just about had a heart attack. Luckily it landed on a cardboard box and didn't break.

Gary, if Dave what you need for amber light its yours. Im talking about the black light with the silver ring that says STOP. I just need the ring that holds the lens in. 4 1/4 " across and about 1/4" thick.

Gary, I'll have to look. I usually pick them up when I run across them. Found a pair of the amber lights NOS still in the boxes a few years ago at an antique store. Dave

I misunderstood Dallas, I thought you needed the ring for the DoRay light!
