Rear lights.

  1. Can anyone recommend somewhere to get some good quality rear light lenses? I’ve bought some in the past and they weren’t great to be honest.

    Thanks in advance

    I have bought the cheaper ones from JK - they lose their colour in 18 months when kept outside

    There are good quality 2nd hand originals about I’d go for them and clean all the lenses in vinegar and use a toothbrush to get the original colour back. I got mine off an eBay seller who breaks buses and quite reasonable too. Otherwise ask on here someone is bound to have some!

  6. Thanks for the advice. I’d always want to buy decent second hand as some of the new stuff is appalling

    find some original hella ones if you can. even if they're old they'll still be better than naff repro new ones

    The Hella/German ones that cost about £40 each are a lot slower fading than the cheaper Brazilian ones. I was able to buy a new one off one of the usual suspects ?? Schofields ?? at Slough Swapmeet, and managed to get a secondhand one for a fiver, where somebody had carefully painted over the inside of the reversing light lens. Some time with a scraper and some clear epoxy on some cracks, and I have two good lenses.
