You're spelling "lens" wrong in your search.

Any way to buy a spare set of these side lamp housings to experiment on? Would need two part nos. (L & R) and costs. Would James know?

I highly recommend using Amazing Goop adhesive. A friend of mine has used it to bond lexan to different types of material and swears by it.
After 10k miles, My fog lights are still holding togethor well.

I did the hammer and chisel on one of mine and it worked well. Split the old lens a bit but the housing is fine. Only did one and put it back together as I ordered the clear smoked from WW but didn't like the see thru look. I just got a set of new ones from WW today with the refractors and they look much better. I found a cheap source for the side markers but James may be cheaper yet.

Having trouble with my internet now or their server but the link is:

Hammer and chisel work fine for the sidemarkers...and Goop rocks.
