Cowl lamps had been sand blasted and locator pins on bezel were missing. Added new pins and have cut a cork gasket for between the bezel, lens glass and housing. This works for holding the glass against the bezel but glass lens can still fall back into the housing if pushed on. Does anyone know if they used cork for the sealing / positioning gasket or maybe something stronger or I might be missing a part ? Appreciate any help. Ken Wright DBC 7051

My 25 has little clips that hold the lens

Thanks Rick, I guess the clips had been removed by the media blasting that was done ( or I haven't found them yet in the containers of parts). I'll look at adding clips that grab the glass lens. Ken

Second update. While looking for the horn button, found the original inner sheet metal retainers that have the bezel locator pins, cut outs for soldering to the housing and I think a spot for clips. Retainers had been pried out so they are pretty twisted but I'll get busy working them back into their original shape. p.s while looking through parts finally found the original clip and retainer machine screw for the oil can holder.
