Busted headlight lense

I know I read somewhere what to look for to replace my busted headlight lens, but darned if I can find it now.

I broke the clear lens of the passenger side headlight and part of the rim is missing. '98 Dutchstar DP 38'.

Help? A source would be great, too. Thanks. Time to get back on the road.

It should be a '92 to '95 ford pickup lens/housing. I got mine from a wreaking yard for $25, if you can find one that is not discolored.

According to an auto lighting expert, TYC housings are junk, 3rd party parts a that do not provide proper light dispersion. We have discussed this in several past threads that you can find via a thread search, if interested.

You can also find the information I mentioned on Daniel Stern Lighting website. Daniel Stern Lighting Consultancy and Supply
