The other option is to just remove the old opaque lenses and do without. That's what I've done, and probably a zillion other people. No one knows the difference except Senior 1940 Packard owners.

Want to thank everyone for your efforts. Levine did not respond to my email. Yes, I removed the old lenses and the dash looks a lot better. That said, I saw reproduction lenses, they were slightly domed and made the dash look spectacular! Unable, however, to get the source for the reproduction lenses.

I've looked high and low for the catalog that I thought I had showing those number lenses. I remember they were kind of expensive, and didn't order them for my car. I've looked through the Yesterday's Radio catalogs that I had, and they weren't in there. So... now I don't know who/where I saw those. I will keep my eyes peeled.

Hmmm. It might have been this company, which I don't know is still in business or not. They still have a web page, so it might be worth investigation.

"Gauge Ring with Number Inserts will be available also."
