Bathroom Light Lens

I am looking for the lens that is for the main bathroom light fixture in a 1971 Ambassador. I don't know what it would look like exactly, but it would be approximately 3 1/2 inches by 12 inches. Talked to Andy but he says they are no longer available.

Mine broke on me, but I've patched it together with epoxy and a strip of clear plastic as a sort of splint. I think that when it gives up the ghost it'll be easier to install a new light fixture than find a replacement lens. I've been keeping an eye open for replacements to no avail.

cameront, can you post a picture of it? My local rv dealer has stuff sitting on the shelf that has been there for years! I can look to see what they have if I can see it.

Can you post a photo of the fixture base? I think I have a lens that may work left over from the LED galley fixture redesign out of the '77' Minuet. If so I will offer it as cargo shifting. I also have the fixture base, but removed the sockets during testing phase on the LED's and used the switch in the new fixture.

As promised, here is the base:



And here is the lens:



I just realized that I haven't fixed this lens yet. I bought the supplies but haven't gotten around to fixing it yet

The lens is just white plastic and I was thinking that if your local highschool or vocational school has a plastics shop, they might be able to make you a new lens.

I hope this helps.

cargo shifting

Unfortunately this is the wrong lens for your application but as promised here is a photo of the lens I removed from the Galley of the Minuet. It is available to the first request as cargo shifting. You pay the postage and it is yours. All I ask is that your request for yourself and not to resell. The lens is still flexible but yellowed and the PO splattered paint on it. See photo.
