Plus 2 Federal Tail Light Lens

PostPost by: Ross Robbins » Fri Jun 19, 2020 2:22 pm

In a moment of inattention, I backed into a fixed object perfectly positioned to smash my right tail light. It is the solid red type, AKA a Federal specification, lens. Does anyone have one for me, please. I don't know what it's worth but you have me over a barrel so be kind. :lol:

I believe they are same as e-type.. you may well find just the cover available. the uk version with orange indicator certainly is, although around £40

I think Etype one don't have the reverse light lens integrated into light as per Elan, just a red section instead of white.

Worth checking etype ones and might be able to move the reverse light lens to a etype lens.

Thanks Mark and Wotsisname. I found one at RD Enterprises. Ray was pretty proud of what he has but as he noted there aren't any more being made so it costs what it costs.I guess I need to be more careful. :oops:

And Ross you did a pretty good job of backing into the “right“ one because as I’ve looked on RDs website I’m pretty sure all he has had are the right side! Gordon
