Reflectors for MCI
« on: June 27, 2006, 11:02:17 AM »
I'm having a hard time locating the round reflectors use on a '78 MC-8.  These are the approx. 4" diameter orange (for the front) and red (for the rear) reflectors.  I've called Luke and Rich, and these seem to be unavailable.  it's hard to believe that almost every other part is available for this bus except these!  Has anybody found a suitable substitute for these?  I'd love to hear of anything that works and looks fairly close to the original.  Thanks!

Go to Truck-lite.com and look in their catalogue under reflectors. There should be something there that will work. Other vehiicle light manufacturers have similar styles. Parts houses that sell truck parts may have to order them for you. The biggest concern is to get ones big enough to cover the existing holes.

Thanks for the suggestion Stan.  They do have some 4" reflectors that may work, but I'm not sure of the price yet.  I don't see anything that looks like a straight replacement, but something that works will be fine.
