8" Trippe driving lights

I'm looking for the source of driving light, stinger, and fog light lenses. I found a website or saw an ad a few years ago and didn't save it. I have a pair of 8-1/2" Trippe driving lights with plain glass for lenses and I'd like to put the real thing in there, reproductions are fine.

Do you know the source that specializes in NOS or reproduction lenses?

You are likely recalling White Glove Restorations/Richard Bloomquist, now being run, or run down, by Cord Bloomquist.
quick search on ebait should pull him up for contact, I think under Bloomie48. maybe...

Thanks, David. I'll look. The name came up in some posts here when I search for Trippe. Gee $850 for a set. My friend Vaughn found these for me in the mid-'70s for $20-$50. He might remember. I tried searching for vintage headlight (instead of driving lights) and came up with these guys, and sent an email.

Pretty much says it all, duh, if they have them.

Crin, the new owner of White Glove Collection, is in the process of making new lenses. crin.dima@gmail.com

He was very helpful and sent a link to the ratrods4us guy on Ebay who bought some of the WhiteGlove inventory.

He has Senior light lenses, used and new. My lights aren't NOS or repros, so I ordered two used ones and I hope they are good ones.
