Rusty Signal Lights - Replacements Needed

I have 3 out of 4 signal lights with badly rusted internals (meal reflector, socket, screws, ect).

I'm looking at replacing all four with after-market or new old stock.

Anybody have any suggestions or websites I should check out?

I found this site , http://www.kandstech.com/, and it has what I'm looking for, but no prices. I'll send them an inquiry.

Outside of eBay or someone here I don't have any good sources for stock replacements.

The sockets are removable with a little penetrating oil and patience....I have a set you can use to replace the 3 wire rear sockets. I might even have the metal reflectors.

I bet the guys who have replaced stock bulbs with my LED boards have reflectors laying around too.
If others have broken stalks, you could use the guts from donor ones.

It might be worth scrounging up other internals and replacing them if you want to keep the stock look.

send me a PM if you want the stuff I have...just cover the shipping and it's yours.

Thanks for the offer. Maybe I should look into the LED conversion, this might be a good time to do that.

If all the stalks are OK, and you're doin' all of 'em. I think this might be the best time.

Yep, that's what I'm going to do.

kc2dgq is going to hook me up with some LED boards, and I just ordered some new covers.
