Well my first pair of NOS RHD Carellos were had for $50 about 6 years ago! And that last pair you talk of, well I had to sell them to raise funds for that new car in my signature... Oh, and I got a bit more for them that what I paid :thumbup: Cheap compared to others I have seen for sale!Everyone looking for real RHD lenses can blame Mr Entesano for single-handedly bumping up the worldwide market, after he paid a truly larcenous price for a couple of new ones. Right, Derek?
Yes possibly not a bad idea Derek, as we kind of are going a little off-track from the original thread. You have got to be kidding about that ashtray price. Madonna, what with some of the stuff I have laying around let alone all my brother's Alfa and other classic wrecks we would have to be sitting on a fortune waiting to be realized. Seriously, my brother's collection of Alfas, Fiats, Lancias, Mercedes, Jaguar, Riley, Porsche etc etc is sadly heading up towards 90 cars !!Good work Alex! I'm not worried cos I am out of it better than what I put in. You will do well selling your second pair too! Trying to think of an item I overpaid the most on. Though I doubt it is as much as whoever bought that pitted ashtray for 387GBP recently hmy:
Thats it I'm starting a new thread on that topic!
What about removing a good, cursive lens from a corroded reflector and installing it on a new reflector, or even a new design reflector with a modern high-output bulb? The lenses are just glued-on and so it should be easy to remove a good lens from a bad reflector. The problem, however, is what kind of adhesive did the oem makers use to fit their lenses to reflectors when they were made? Is there a viable substitute?Not worth much with corroded reflectors, but worth putting aside. The problem is that nowhere in Australia does proper resilvering. If you put them on ebay I am sure someone will still buy them though.
