    Does anybody make these? I have good lenses and bezels on both sides but the "can" part of the assembly that actually mounts to the fender and holds the bulbs is rotted away. Just curious if anybody reproduces the whole shebang?

    If you have satifactory lenses and bezels, you can repair the 'cans'. Light socket assemblies are available from your local auto parts store. They come in various typres and sizes. A metal socket for 1157 bulb should do it for you. I did mine that way.

    Ray,
    Thanks for that. Yep...it's the "body" or "can" part of the assempbly that's rotted away. I'll see what I can find!
