Just thought I would add that you can still order the clear lenses from kansastruck.net . They where $5.40 each for my bus (P/N 428649.

Re: flashing light covers

We will keep our flasher lights and just bypass the flasher cube so they stay on. We will then buy some of the clear/white lens covers to use as "docking" lights. We can light up a campground with those!!!!

Re: flashing light covers

Lights look great. Might have to do that to mine eventually.

Re: flashing light covers

I'm kinda curious about that. We are keeping one set (inner front and inner rear) as "docking lights" the outer ones will be stop/turn on the rear and turn only on the front. We haven't turned on our light at dusk yet but the lights are 75Watt. I still think we could light up a campground. Teach those stick-n-staples fools for calling skoolies " rolling meth labs" (just a joke, so they said). Really, we are doing it because sometimes you just need a big light when you break down or have a flat on the toad.

I plan to eventually wire them to the turn signals, OR to some other flashing light display for "party mode" (i.e. paint smiley faces in reverse on them, etc).

There is a junkyard near me that has 3 school busses that have lenses... am toying with the idea of getting a few extra to play with....

Want to have fun?
Get extra turn signal (amber) lights...on the rear of the bus you want three per side, total, including your original ones.
THEN get the turn signal mechanism from an old Cougar (Mercury car), and use it's sequential turn signals wiring to make sequential turn signals for the bus.
Very trick, cool to see, folks pay more attention.
