President Lincoln "Condom"

Post by slamjam » 24 Aug 2018, 11:10

Hi
does anyone know of a supplier of the President Lincoln Condoms for the meter bulb? I know rapid did stock them years ago but I can't find them anywhere online. Otherwise does anyone have a spare?

There's a transparent paint you can get from the likes of Tamiya or maybe humbrol that you can use to paint car tail light and indicator bulbs - so red or yellow - if that would do the job? They may do other colours too.
If you haven't sussed one soon, let me know what colour cover you're after and I'll see if I've anything in my old bulbs container (some cars used them for tinting bulbs in meters).

I've had a look and unfortunately, I've only got a pink one (which has a split in it anyway) and a yellow one. The others I have are definitely too big sorry.

Couldn't help myself with the "pink one" and "split condom" puns ;)

If in a hurry use a permanent marker pen of appropriate colour but in this day and age I would LED it.
