  • 1950 Champion turn signal lenses


    In preparation for bolting the speedometer/gauge panel in my freshly painted dash before installing it back into the car I decided to clean the back side of the instrument panel glass. Now that I have it apart, I have a question:
    The two green lenses for the turn signals need to be replaced. Are these available or has someone found something else that will work?

    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    I cut some circles out of a green plastic medicine bottle. There may be some available somewhere, I never checked.

      The med bottle idea may do it! Thanks for the idea.

        others have used colored divider tabs, or gels for theatrical lighting (check a music store.) It's just a piece of colored plastic, use whatever is most convenient for you to get.
