found a source for turn signal plastic dash lens

the 2 green plastic lens and the red hi beam plastic lens that goes in the dash cluster you can buy from anyone who sells Thunderbird parts...

you want what is called a Instrument Panel Jewel set for a 1955-56 T-Bird....
found mine on e-bay for under 10 bucks....

they are the perfect size

Go to a stationary store, buy one green and red margin plastic page, cut the puppies to fit.

FoMoCo never offered these parts, they were only furnished with the various dials. So, this was the scenario long before these parts were repro'd.

Are there no stationary stores in jaw jah?

Y'all have a cabbage patch doll hospital, a USN supply school, a hardware store that once was a Studebaker wagon dealer and has parts for those in the basement, and 100's of new old stock kerosene lamps, so...

I would think there'd be a stationary store someplace. Maybe if y'all "went marching thru Georgia" you'd find some.

Been to Cleveland lately? Cabbage Patch hospital alive and well. Just south of Atlanta in a town starting with a B (forget the name), is where that hardware store is located.

Band organ in one small town museum plays one tune. When the docent turned the thing on and I listened to a coupla bars, I told the docent...of all things, it's playing a homage to General William Tecumseh Sherman!

"When We Went Marching Thru Geargia." She had no clue, was prolly a relative of a carpet bagger.

Huntington Beach is due south, Glendora is NE of where my backside is sitting.
