If I recal right (and that aint garinteed) the ausi had the bezals, but was having a hard time finding a glass mfgr. I combed through his web site maybe two years ago when i sold my truck, and didnt see these. same with jonny-B,
and Im always on his website, of course now that im pushing 60 its getting harder to keep track. would like to hear the story on the glass, if anyone knows it.

What story would you like to hear? I teamed up with MV Spares to make the glass lenses and the bezels. We were provided original take offs from 2 GP owners and 2 early Dodge owners. We tooled up and made them. We have a bunch and want to move them out of inventory, so a price reduction sale has ensued. Once these are sold out, no more will be made. Same rule applies to the early louvre tail lights and marker lights.

I was under the impression that the red glass was lost alchemy that no one could do any more. involving 14 K gold, seems I even remember the england stained glass cathedral people having trouble with it. where on earth did you find a glass guy to do it?

or was all that just a bunch of hooy
