News from RDS - Third brake light

Just got a call from George at RDS yesterday. Apparently the third brake light (the light itself) is on an indefinite backorder with no delivery date estimate. Seems like these are NLA now...damn..

cracks, yes
faded, yes
some corrosion, yes
bent top covers, yes

Nothing mint or that could be restored to mint (otherwise we would not have replaced it).

We are talking lamps that we thought were not good enough for customers cars, but decided to keep some for parts. Over time the "keep some of those" pile started spilling out over the box.

Gotcha. I know I need at least one lens for sure.

Maybe I'll take a picture of mine and if you wouldn't mind, let me know how it compares. Not looking for mint, but figured I could do better.

Last time I ordered from George I thought he said he has issues with his email provider blocking out some emails. Give him a call - he's a top notch guy and once he has your email I think he'll have no problem working that way. I've done it in the past as it is hard for me to get on the phone during the day.

Spoke with George for an hour yesterday (seems to happen when he doesn't have what I'm looking for). He's moving everything to Gulfport, Miss. (his hometown). He's frustrated with the port of New orleans and how screwed up things get with his shipments (I could relate to that) and feels Gulfport is a better choice. He said he has 40% of his inventory already moved but wont finish the move until his 6000 sq ft New Orleans warehouse sells.
