Hi All,

I'm looking for used (not damaged - in good condition) bottom tail lamp lens for Desoto 1957. Shipping overseas to Europe; does anyone would help me?

I'd appreciate for any info where I could buy it.


Thanks and best regards,
Marcin

Hi, Marcin:

 

I got your email.  I apologize for the late reply.  I looked through my spare lenses and they each one is really rough.  I would suggest getting a brand new lens (or set) through Kent Johanson and Peter.  You can find them at

Hi Mike,

Thanks for response from your side and contact to our friends from Sweden :-) I think I will get in touch with them soon and we will find some nice spare parts for my Desoto57.
Have a nice day for all of you!

Regards,
Marcin

Paul,

Thanks for pics and your proposal! I'm really interested to buy it!
One question more regards to my topic. During disassembly of the lamp I discovered that the bottom frame (rear part) of left lamp has been taken from right side and used of left side (someone bought used part; it seems that my car had small cullet in the past but not so huge) and current part doesn't fit good. So the conclusion is I must buy additionally "rear" frame extra :-( Of course I'm really interested to buy the lense but maybe you have on your "stock" also mentioned frame form "left" side or even complete left tail lamp?


P.S. Does anyone know where could I buy rear Emblem Nameplate FireSweep?

Regards,
Marcin

Hi Marcin,

Do you mean the triangle piece behind the taillight tower?
I will have a look what I have.

Thanks Paul.

Hello , this is what you get for 100euros plus shipping from Finland. The frame part has a crack at lower left corner but except for that it is fine. Osinski can repair and rechrome it if
it has to be perfect.
The light lens tower is shiny and nice but it is chrome painted by Fantachrome in Poland. It was too badly pitted to get a real chrome surface.

22mafeja: this is price for both sets or only one piece of tower/set for one side?

Hi,

 

Is it possible to insert/add any attachment to new post? How to do this?

Any limitations for new users?... I can't upload any pics now. I'd like to show you my tail lamp and its condition.

 

Coming back to our topic honestly speaking I need only left triangle for my tail lamp; lens will bought from Paul. Any ideas regards to this triangle?...

 

//Marcin

Hi Mike,

Yes a good one, out of the 6 only 2 made it to UK, guy that posted them just put the tailight towers in a box with no packing, by the time they made it here 4 were broken in pieces.

Hi Paul,

I have to show those pics and parts to guy who probably will try to restore it and make a new chrome layout...
We will be in touch!

Hi All,

Thanks for your support from all of you.
Luckily I'm waiting for tail lens from Paul "springsweptwing". Additionally I'm in touch with Danny who has whole set of lenses for me.

So for this moment I'm looking for the rest of required equipment for Desoto... ;-)

Best regards and Merry Christmas!

Cheers,
Marcin
