There was a posting a few weeks back on how to make new lenses for old marker lights.
Could this same process be adapted to create a new lens for the bath????

Just wonder what might happen with a little trial and error.

Unless you are doing a museum quality restoration, I don't see any reason to keep the old light to begin with. It uses incandescent energy gobbling bulbs, the covers all yellow and become brittle and although they were OK in the '70's why not just replace the entire light fixture with something available today? It would be a simple swap out.

I agree, why not replace the fixture with a modern unit?

I converted mine to LED. I wanted to keep the vintage look.
If there is a plastic supply place near you they probably know someone who can fabricate a new one. There are only 4 bends.

Thanks to all who responded. I glued the two halves together with superglue and will live with it.
