Randy, Gary - thanks for the info. Just emailed him.
Mr. Jonathan Richards - believe me, it pained me when it happened. I have every intent to keep it as original as possible!
Thanks all for your help.

Thanks Randy. The person in Europe that made up reproduction glass lenses still evades me. For some funny reason I can't find the posting using our search engine in this web site. I remember actually seeing what was made and the price for 2 lens was about $200.00. I think but am not sure the sign on name was Emporature or something like that. It definitely was over there.

I have never tried this but I have a friend that has been making motorcycle lens for years and they can be cast in color for tail with great success, you need a vacuum chamber to draw out gas bubbles in casting before cure.

This You Tube film is brilliant. I was not aware of ALUMILITE before, thanks for sharing this. It really is a pity that more members do not contribute to these Forums however thanks to all those who do.

Two weeks ago, Dan Badger at America's Packard Museum was showing me fabulous 1933 Packard Super Eight Taillamp lenses he was reproducing in a plastic and I mention d the Cord issue - he replied that he was well aware as a friend previously mentioned regarding his Custom Beverly that has recently been shown at ACD festival - you may talk him into reproducing - (937) 226-1710.
