Front clearance lights

I noticed yesterday that one of the lens on the front of my Solera was missing. I started checking around for a replacement but the type of light used here is not a normal light and is not that easy to find. I have the local dealer checking with FR about it at this time but have to wonder why this is so hard to find. The lights are Gol-Brite 122Y from FMC beginning to wonder if FMC makes these any more or what going on? Any one else had problems with this issue? I did see some previous postings on this problem with Georgetowns and some other FR units.

How long ago was that? I've been checking every where and can not find them. Seen here on the forum in January that the glo-brite company went out of business and the lens are no longer available. I've decided to replace them with Eptronics LED button lights. Will let you know how it turns out.

Thanks, but they don't have the yellow lens which is what I need. Everything I'm hearing is that this light and lens has been discontinued. Even the local dealers can't get them.

Well about 3 hours worth of work and the new clearance lights are installed and looking good. The lights are Optronics MCL11 with double led's in each light.

Thought I'd add one more picture of the lights at dusk.
