Looking for base for rear lights
Tue Mar 09, 2010 10:46 am


I hope you don't mind it Luvrbus but I needed a photo to show what I need. My lenses are good but the bases that mount to the bus are shot. I suspect they are leaking because they are cracked. I am looking to buy a set. If you have any in good shape let me know please.

You can tell by the red the location of the light.

If I can't find any then I am going to make two new ones out of aluminum. seal it with a silicone and bolt it on. the first ones lasted 24 years so If I can find a set it would be a lot easier.

I can be emailed at wal1809@hughes.net
telephoned at 713 530 9182

Just don't forget to get them on the right way this time around. Unlike our PO's, they didn't do that on either of our Eagles! :shock:

Hello Paul, That is how I found out they might be leaking. I went up there to turn them the right way and when I took them off there was water between the baas plate and the lens. the base plates were cracked as if they were 26 years old or something :lol: .

I talked to the guy that Clifford sent me to and he has 2 in the mail as we type. I also just let Harbor Freight where I bought a heat gun. I am getting that alcohol blown dragster crud off of the back.

:lol: I know you saw my mud rig. On the way home we of course had to stop at WalMart (wife can't drive by one without stopping). I was greasin ghte rear pto shaft because it happened to stop in te position I could get to the zerk. A guy walks up and reaads the back of the bus (Stardust Racing Blown Alcohol Dragster Boats) and asked where the blower was and if I really raced it in drag races? Uhh no sir was all I could say. I didn't want ot be mean to him.

FWIW: You can take a small diameter drill bit (I used a 1/8th) and in the middle of each lens, drill a small hole in the base and this will allow the water to escape. After some trips you would think it was a cotton-pickin' submarine for cryin' out loud.

Anywho this seemed to fix the problem.
