I've been searching online for a week to locate new chrome trim rings for the 4.5" (PAR-36) turn signal sealed beams on my 4104. Anyone know where to get them?  If they make the lamp, you wouldn't think it would be that hard to find trim rings. Even better would be grooved or hooded rings.

Unless you can find some from another 4104 they don't exist.  You can contact Wayne Medlin in Ft Worth, Texas he has found someone to make them and is taking orders.  I have pm'ed you his phone number.  Wayne don't do computers, he will call you if he wants to talk to you.

I've got the originals.  No dents and surface rust.  I may wind up just polishing or getting them re-chromed.

Mine aren't sealed beams?

I planned to just buy new same-size lights and replace the originals if mine ever broke. Nothing special about those lights, just round!

I am working with Wayne on this trim ring project. I think you may spend more on re-chrome than prices Wayne is quoting. Wayne is a 4501 guy, and I have an 04 & 4501s. Both coaches use the same ring front and rear (if your bus is original style) I would be curious to know about re-chrome prices. 0000 steel wool, and soft scrub does a great job on old chrome, as long as it is not faded away, or badly pitted. Thanks

If you know of the whereabouts of a PD4501 Scenicruiser - I would like to add the serial number to my registry of surviving Scenics.  www.tomsgarageonline.com
