My light covers , the curved plastic covers of the side lights in all cabins, have deteriorated over time. Has anyone found a source for their replacement or an alternative?

Rainshadow does not have anything like this – are you saying your side portlights lenses are made of plastic, or is this “plastic cover” some sort of interior shade?

Ah, my mistake.

Our interior ceiling lights have glass shades, which are most annoying because they has sharp decorative ribs on them. Quite painful when you hit your head against one. I think I would prefer deteriorated plastic.

Of course, we could change all the fixtures to solve the problem – which may be what you need to do as well. I’ve considering trying to find a replacement shade that would fit the fixture, but it seems a lost cause. New LED fixtures would be quite nice. (Although we have replaced the bulbs in ours already with LEDs).

Perhaps a picture of your lights may get a different response from another forum member.

Hi,

If you are writing about the bunk reading light covers just as I did  buy a small sheet of clear flexible perspex and cut to suit.

My replacement covers are still good after 22 years. And yes, also changed lamps to LEDs
