    ... but what are you after exactly?
    Left or right stainless housing?
    The end trim, which are also sided?
    An orange lens or a complete lamp?
    Something different or earlier???

    If it's just the lense ... new is the way to go. I have a good variety of heavily faded/perished and cracked lenses though. They match the perished rubber boot that once held the earth against the globe base.

    Take your pick Woody. . .



    I take it you would want to match the lens you already have?

    The left is a repro, the centre a used Seima (OEM) and the right who knows.
    I can supply 2 x repro if you want a matching set. PM a mailing address.

    There is a big difference between the repro and a genuine NOS Seima



    Cheers
    Chris

    aaahhhhh Chris,
    I'm sure there is another self help website for you, who on earth has documented the variations in rear indicator DS lenses? Pretty sure I have a few spares floating around Woody, I will check what is there on the weekend. I will do it just to check Chris hasn't omitted a variation, although I doubt he has.

    I've searched Michael, this is by far the best place for next to useless information

    I'm not totally down on repro stuff but there are often significant differences. . . with the rear indicators, not the least being size, the Seima is a lovely fit to the stainless, easy to fit and remove - the repro is a very tight fit.

    Aside from colour the lens on the Seima has texture on the inside which acts to diffuse, subtle but nice



    I could go on but you get the idea . . .

    Cheers

    OK, since you asked. . .

    An early variation, note the different part number 572 4a and Seima text, possibly for the red transparent style trumpet?








    I would think this set even predates the above? Totally different bulb holders and a work of art






    Cheers

    I instantly liked the red trumpets upon first sight; maybe a little tacky for some but to me they sympathised with the translucent roof - it was ambience and diffusion.

    Could the opaqued-up orange one pictured earlier, be a Lucas era lens from something like a Slough or Heidelberg car?

    I don't have good pictures Adam, but the Lucas were quite different again. . .

    the Sepo ones are fugly. they got gipped big time! well researched essay Chris. A glowing review!
    I have the repro ones and just like them because they look new! I'll save up and buy some front ones one day.
    The repro ones have cheap bowls, not like the hardy fantastic plastic Seima.

    If they're not too far gone they can be polished with toothpaste.
