Default Where to get glass for the Bosch headlight?

Like this (picture from internet):


I would like to purchase glass for such headlight.
Where cant I get it in the cheapest way? (money is critical for me)

The best is to find new-made glass.
Are there some vendor of such new-made detail?

Is it possible to find such glass on e-bay (only glass, not with headlight)?
Is it possible to use/adapt for this headlight some glass from easy-to-get afterwar headlight?

Any ideas are welcome.

P.S. What is Bosch partnum of this headlight? I have no any ersatzteilliste with this headlight, so I don't know what is it's model number. But purtnumber can help with spare parts search...

Contact him and let him know what you are trying to find. He can help.

Everything is reproduced for vintage vehicles. That is where you will get close. Also sometimes not necessarily cheap either.

Yes very similar flat glass Hella and Bosch glass on Germany eBay for 'old timers' as vintage vehicles are often called in Germany including older Bosch headlight glass like these. Big collectors market...if you can make it there hit the Flohmarkt (also called Trödelmarkt) for a better deal than on German eBay.

Also lots of vintage Lecalight headlights on US ebay such as the one pictured for under $50 US if you dont care about it not saying Bosch.

Possibly if you know someone who can work down vintage flat glass lenses.

Cant help on the part number but good luck to you.

Yeah if I had an original I could make these all day long too. Cast and pour clear. It's a very particular flat lens. Just need one...=)


Maybe Wheatcroft or Kubinka can help. Would like to see the results if you ever complete.

No one such headlight in Kubinka. Only late after-war "Made in USSR".

I forgot about how bad the postwar lights were on the period armor. You are right.

I have Bosch light but I won't take the risk to ship ( break or lost ) and then the Bosch light would loose 40% of its value !

The partnumber of this headlight ends with "...A 120/2".
What are the first letters or digits?
They are painted inside the headlight case and at the back of the reflector.

Hello.

I've wrote him message in ebay, but he doesn't answer. Maybe he receives plenty of messages.
Can you advice more reliable way to contact him?
