Wanted perfect used or NOS wedding band tailights
Posted by: jcorvair ()
Date: February 18, 2020 12:58PM

Anyone have any mint or NOS brake/backup lenses with the narrow "wedding band" trim (early 1966) they are willing to part with? At the very least I need one of each, but will consider sets. Two of mine have very small cracks near the centre.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, I should have noted that I am looking for GUIDE lenses to match the originals.

I knew NOS lenses are Guide lenses. You can remove thin rings and put them on a good set of Guide lenses

Yes, I saw those, but in the past, getting the larger rings off NOS lenses has been very difficult in some cases, then you need to put your wedding bands on. I would prefer to look for something that is plug and play if possible. If not then I can see if Clarks has some repros that the wide bands fell off.

Thanks everyone for the ideas though.

Yep, I have seen those. As I only need two, there is always the convention and the Homecoming, and GWFBTSM to find a couple good used.
