Lenses for old style wing tips
 
I’d like to install lights in my wing tips which are the old-style flat topped ones (W-415 I think).

FlyLED have just sold their last set; Vans don’t have any. Does anyone know of a company that still sells these? Everything else I can make. Otherwise I guess I’m going to have to learn how to mold Lexan.

AS an afterthought - do any of the other lenses fit anywhere near closley enough to use?

Thanks

Chris

Knots2U have old style -4 lenses!
 
Thanks John.

My tips are already bonded in place and will be a pain to remove and repalce.

Happily, I discovered that Knots2U can supply the lenses for the old style tips :D

Just prior to that discovery, I had found a thread on a Bearhawk site ( http://mybearhawk.com/finish/tips2.html )that shows RV10 lenses being reshaped with some judicious use of a heat gun - so that was my plan A tho I'm very happy yo have been able to move on to plan B.:D:D:D

The FLyLED's site has information on how to make the recess in the tip

So now I'm good to go.
