Question Driver's Side Headlamp question...

What looked like another "smoked" lamp on the '96 is actually the reflector plating sloughing off due to moisture intrusion at some point in its previous life. I had this happen on a '91 Sedan deVille, also a glass lens car, and back then there were none in the junk yards. Last couple of years the yard were full of deVilles and a few D-Body Fleetwood Broughams.

Anyone have a clean headlamp capsule sitting around they want to sell? I could put it in the buy & sell section but thought the Fleetwood section might be a better place to start. There's some guy here in Florida who's been trying to sell a Brougham on Craigslist for months with no takers. Soon it will be down to free...time to call I reckon.
