These are my wingtip lenses. I finally found them at Knots2U. They are from the RMD lighting standard kit and are part numbers nd RV1001-R and RV 1001-L. RMD was purchased by Knots2U. My contact at Knots2U was Kevin Kerr. They had to be trimmed to fit, but it was not difficult. Just trace and cut a little large with tin snips and then finish trimming with a wheel.

Indeed, Knots2U, Jake Bailey on 262 763 5100.

Part numbers RMD-RV1001-R and -L.

Alternatively, one can buy eg RV10’lensrs, heat them and reshape over a mild of the desired shape.

I was about to embark on reshaping when I managed to find Knots2U.

The interior parts of the recess I am planning to make out of aluminium. Shouldn’t be too difficult.

Hope that is helpful.
