Re: clear lens covers

Hmmm... Those seem to be hard to come by. What you are looking for is the 1020 series lense. I believe that is the "Weldon" part number. (most common). You can use a back up light lense if you want if the screw holes line up. But those are not designed to project the sealed beam light. Those are designed for an 1156 bulb.

I did find a website that appears to show a "clear" lense in the 1020 series. I would call to confirm. Just ask if they carry clear lenses in the 1020 series.

Hope this helps.
Good Luck

Re: clear lens covers

My Crown bus came with two large boxes of various unused lens covers. Not sure if they will work for your Thomas. PM me if you're interested.

Re: clear lens covers

I got a clear lense from a wrecked ambulance in a salvage yard and it had 8 in the ceiling and more outside. Call around and see if you can find some. Sportyrick

I found 3 lense covers in an ambulance today, the 4th was missing, I also found out where to get them new. Goggle ambulance parts, you will find them in those websites...
they cost $15 new, I paid $2 each for the 3......
