Hello Colin,

would the fitting Lens be available from a regular supplier like Rimmer , Dolphin or anyone else?

kind regards 

I bought one new and boxed from Mick Dolphin at the Stafford show many years ago, which I fitted to my 1200 estate - he might be worth a try again. I've no idea if the lens was ever used in any other Triumph but it's quite a distinctive lens, curved and with a clear magnifying section at the bottom. The spare baseplate I have is at the bottom.

Guess what? Canleys might have one, it's listed on their website.

Rimmers are also listing them as new.

Sorry for not replying to the topic since Thursday but I was distracted by a fire in my carport which affected not only my Courier `s front RH wing, but nearly destroyed

my Vitesse convertible. It is totally devastating as the convertible was the one of my Triumphs that was in a real proper condition. 

But now back to the rear interior roof lamp.

@Colin Lindsay: THX for the hint to the dealers. Will contact them asap.

have a good night

Hi Colin,

I appreciated your pointing me to the dealers, but to no avail.

Mick Dolphin didn't answer my mail, Canley and Rimmer sold their last item this year.

Hopefully I `ll be lucky in Stoneleigh next year.
