    Looking for either headlight lenses, or a dinged up body with lenses. Haven’t seen any spares out on Flea Bay Click image for larger version

    Why don't you make your own? Should be easy... make a mold, get some Alumilite, mix it and pour it and trim it when cured.

      Or, more simply, use a 1 liter seltzer bottle, cut the bottom off, and find the exact curvature you want, cut it out and glue it on. There are so many curves there, you'll find yours.

        Thanks guys. I’ll give those ideas a whirl. It’s one of those small things that happens, but changes the whole look of the car. I tried that Testors clear, but couldn’t get what I wanted.

          Getting ready to make some myself. Cutting a clear water bottle to shape and installing. Have done many this way, they come out just fine.

            Put a piece of tape over the open light area and trace an outline of the lens shape.
            Place the piece of tape on a clear plastic bottle of something else with a curved shape and cut out the lens. Test fit and trim to suit. If you need more curve a gentle working over a curved shape (piece of dowel / paint brush handle etc and you are good to go) with your fingers can enhance the curve. One sized and shaped glue with canopy glue or the Testers clear make work as well. Fix it on with a bit of tape while the glue dries.

            cheers
