    I went with the smaller, squarer one due to it resembling the look of the actual light more. It is a little on the short side though. I didn't spend time searching the internet for another option.

    Here is a photo with some dimensions basing what is known from the rocket size.

    Did some quick looking & found this which would be very close but minimum buy. But would be super close to diameter & height.

    Good find, Chris. The size and shape look bang on. I don't know if I'm reading this correctly, but it looks to me like there are two pieces...the assembly at $39 and the diffused cap at $3.42....and then you need a minimum order. Would you order just the cap and use a different assembly?

    I think at that price I'm willing to give up some accuracy for something that small

    Very pricey but as close to the real deal that I have been able to find. Can't say that I am going to jump on buying one of these set ups anytime soon though. Especially with a minimum. But if you could buy the lens & put a different LED behind it that could work. You could just thread the lens right into your gauntlet & bring a light in from the backside instead of buying the whole assembly.

    I think I am going to keep looking on this. I don't know if there are any previous threads that cover this on where to locate this light.

    The only thread I saw was the one with the light I mentioned:

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f31/r...-lights-46166/


    There is this one, but the pic is dead:

    Seems that a user named Halo_1 found the solution:

    He's still a pretty active member...maybe he can chime in.

    Nice find TG . it is a bit rich for my blood as well. Thank you for posting that pic with the dimensions.. that will help a lot in the search. I figured since i don't have all the parts to do up the kit yet i might as well keep searching for different lamps that could work.

    i think these are only available in Australia ..not sure.. dang

    Awesome find Justin. I think the 6.5 one would be the one to go with base on what I measured on the gauntlet. Need to find a supplier here in the states.

Thank you again Jc27 for the suggestion....

    What amazes me been doing some searching & you can find those lights in the UK or Australia. Haven't been able to find a US supplier for a similar light.

    Hi,

    this is the amazon.uk link:
    5 Pcs DC 12V Threaded Indicator Light Signal Lamps Red: Amazon.co.uk: Car & Motorbike

    Just search for 12v red indicator lamp and you get different options. Should work with any other amazon as well. Hope this helps.

    You would have to solder two wires onto the lamp then connect the wires to a battery.

    the red connectors are called posi locks .. JC27 suggested them, and i really like them

    Found it on US Amazon. I'm sure it's the same distributor in some way/shape/form.
