Why can I find every other lense but this one?

Help!! I need a passenger side turn signal lense for my 74 chevy pickup. It is a simple rectangle w/ two srews, one on each end of it. Believe it or not, I have been looking and cannot find THIS lense. I have located multiple sources for every other lense on the truck. No one seems to manufacture these aftermarket. I went down to the local parts store and they couldn't find it either. All the other lenses, just not the turn signal lenses.

What a freakn headache. Where can I find this lense new? Why do they aftermarket EVERY other one and not these?

Help!!



Anyone?? 1974 Chevy Full Size Pickup Front Passenger side Turn signal lense. Actually will get both front lenses when I do find some.....

Have you gone back to the dealership or local salvage yard?
The dealers may only have stock going back to early 80's but its worth a try.

Cool

Try LMC in Kansas City area, I think the web address is www.lmctruck.com , cheap honest and great products. You can order a catalog at this web address. I looked in my catalog and the lenses are there, along with the screws and seals.

yeah, the guy at Napa recommend LMC but you have to order a catalog to view the inventory (as I understood the site). Needless to say, the catalog has been ordered. Gonna try some junkyards but most of them are buried in 3-4 ft. of snow at the moment. This is just so frustrating. It is like the ONLY lens I need. Murphy's Law at work in full force I suppose and patience is a virtue!! LOL

Any other ideas guys?

Thanx Joe. I still am gonna wait for the catalog. I want to see a pic before purchasing anything. I got off work early today so I am gonna go scope out a few junk yards and see what that produces. I appreciate your help.



ok, I went to a few junk yards and did manage to locate two new used lenses with minimal damage to them (including the chrome trim with them). Took a lot of searching. In this area, they don't inventory anything but simply point you in the direction of the "chevy graveyard" ...the rest is up to you. Finding non-damaged ones was hard and I still ended up w/ one with a piece of broken plastic but it was on the outside of the sealed part. A little hot glue fixed that and you cannot even tell with them on the truck. Quite a bargain at $5 per lense. Got a few other small items while I was there. Hurray. Thanx all!!
