More vandalism - finding 4" reflectors and clips?
« on: November 07, 2017, 01:16:13 PM »

Dealing with a pretty intense story of vandalism that I'll probably post later, but first - they took off all of the 4" reflectors from the side of the bus, including the metal wire clips that hold them in.

Anyone know where I can find these?  I've found screw in and adhesive, but I was hoping for some that used the same clips as well as the clips (although I could probably make those by bending heavy wire if needed).

And unfortunately they heavily damaged one of the reflector bases, I'm going to try to fix it, but wouldn't mind finding a replacement.

This is what I get for buying a second bus and throwing it out, I immediately start needing parts like nobodies business.  Ridiculous.  If only storage costs in the SF area weren't even more ridiculous...

I don't know what the clips look like, but try an older body shop. Maybe they'll have something similar.
NAPA has a clip catalog that lists everyone they sell.

Dave -

Luke may still have some.  I picked up a couple from him three years ago when I had my MCI serviced at his shop.

Sam says he doesn't have anything for an old 1986 MCI102A3.

I tried Luke's number, no answer yet.

Sorry to hear that. If you find some and have some extra red or yellow reflectors, 4 inch, I need some for our MCI 7 1973
