WHELEN W1282 LENS RETAINER
Thanks for your email
Whelen parts are of high quality and affordable.
Good fit on the round gasket W1283.
Works great as mounted on top of the fuselage. I didnt catch the fact that I need a mounting plate and therefore had to pay shipping on a separate order...
Good quality part, well packed. Extremely high price for small gasket. Need second source for older Cessna parts.
5 stars for the usual great A/C Spruce service, but only 2 stars for the part - a red position light lens - because of the $40 price. Its not an optically ground lens, just a hemispherical piece of red glass, thats been available for at least 50 years. Add shipping and it cost about $50. Just another outrageously expensive aircraft part, I suppose.
