needed: side marker

This past Monday I was driving through a BP gas station and an Electric company truck backed into my right rear quarter panel. I took it in right away and got an estimate. Not really all that bad. The Electric company will pay for the repair. No damage to any fiberglass, tail lights or extentions, but it did wipe out the side marker reflector. Now I need one and can't find any. If anyone has a new one or a good used one I would love to buy it. Thanks, Mark.

Man, sorry to hear about that! At least it doesn't sound too bad. I'll bet that driver got out of his truck and about freaked when he saw what he backed into!

meadowsdk68, thanks, not too bad at all. Should be done sometime next week. As long as it is in there I am having them do a couple of othe minor things on my nickel.

The guy that hit me was horrified. He said "why couldn't have I hit an old junker?" He kept apologizing, but the damage really wasn't that bad.

Mark.

jbsteven, thanks, I will contact the seller, however mine is a late 68 with the chrome surround. This looks different. Maybe for the recessed unit? Mark.

1968 Mustangs built prior to 15 Feb 68 used that type of reflector (inserted into a cut-out in the rear quarter), 68 Mustangs built after 15 Feb 68 were equipped with a bolt-on style red reflector with oval shaped chrome trim. The early reflector's are becoming harder and harder to find.

Re:needed: side marker

Thanks to all for their help. After looking at countless used ones, some quite good, I decided to go with new. Expensive but the car is really nice. Mark.

That's the way I think of things. If you buy used it will never be perfect. Buy it new and not have to worry about buying it again.
