Morning Matt.

Is the bulb holder itself rusted to bu**ery as well? If not, you'd be surprised how well the reflector would come out after a soaking in Evaporust.

When you searched fleabay etc, did you also search under "Imasen"? Some folks come across old indicators in their shed, don't know what they're actually from and so list under the manufacturer's name.

Ideally, you'd want to find an indicator with a damaged outer but good reflector, so that nothing goes to waste. However, if that proves impossible, then you might have to buy a complete replacement indicator and take what you need from it. As it happens, I might have a spare indicator or two later on today, and I'll also have a butchers in my stash to see what's there, though I suspect it'll be bulb holders only.

If you can get the rust dealt with, DEET had a post on polishing and using the concave bottom of an aluminum soft drink can to repair the reflector part.

(I hope this doesn't devolve into a "Which is a better can to use?  Pepsi or Coke?" debate...
